Microsoft is leading the charge in calling for governments around the world to use secret surveillance of Internet users only in accordance with specific, define legal processes. Microsoft, who counts amongst its allies AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Yahoo, referred specifically to allegations against the United States that were revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Posted on their legal blog, Microsoft said:

“People won’t use technology they don’t trust. Governments have put this trust at risk, and governments need to help restore it. This summer’s revelations highlighted the urgent need to reform government surveillance practices worldwide. The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual—rights that are enshrined in our Constitution. This undermines the freedoms we all cherish. It’s time for change.”
