Transparency is not a solution
""We believe that increased transparency will lead to increased accountability and responsibility over time"
I've been hearing this sentiment more and more from the spy-happy companies. It's a lie. Increased transparency is a good thing, yes, but it alone will not lead to increased accountability and responsibility. The only thing that will do that is some sort of stick that hits those companies right in the wallet.
I think they are pushing this line of BS in the hopes of getting people to think that it's OK if they punch you in the face, as long as they tell you exactly which fist they'll use and how hard it will hit.
