EFF battles misleading, sloppy, secret FBI warrants aimed at the Internet
Archive and CREDO
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has disclosed that it has
won two key victories for clients who'd received the FBI's
notorious, gag-ordered National Security Letters -- a form of
secret warrant that has become the go-to way for law
enforcement to avoid scrutiny since the Patriot Act's passage.
One of EFF's clients was the Internet Archive from whom the
FBI was seeking information that Archive didn't have
(something that should have been obvious before the warrant
was issued), and which was accompanied by misleading
information about how and whether the Archive could challenge
it. The other client was CREDO, a community oriented mobile
carrier, who fought its NSL for three years with EFF's help.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
