Update from Google on Net Neutrality

Last week, our Chief Legal Officer, David Drummond, asked you to tweet at your senators and urge them to pass real, meaningful surveillance reform. You spoke out strongly along with thousands of people around the country. This week, we're taking the next step.

The CEOs of major Internet companies, including Google, sent this letter to the U.S. Senate calling for real surveillance reform.

Read the letter and be sure to share it with friends.

Read the letter now.


Surveillance reform is only real and meaningful if it includes limiting the bulk collection of Internet data (e.g., who you email and who emails you). As it stands, the USA FREEDOM Act doesn't prevent bulk data collection — but the Senate has a chance to change that and close the loophole.
