The Guardian: GCHQ data collection regime violated human rights, court rules

The Guardian: GCHQ data collection regime violated human rights, court rules. “GCHQ’s methods for bulk interception of online communications violated privacy and failed to provide sufficient surveillance safeguards, the European court of human rights has ruled. But the ECHR found that GCHQ’s regime for sharing sensitive digital intelligence with foreign governments was not illegal, and it explicitly confirmed that bulk interception with tighter safeguards was permissible.” GCHQ stands for the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters.
