Submission + - Open Rights Group sue UK Government (

An anonymous reader writes: The Open Rights Group, Big Brother Watch and English PEN, along with German internet activist Constanze Kurz, have filed papers at the European Court of Human Rights bringing action against the UK Government.

They argue that GCHQ, the UK's spy agency, has acted illegally by collecting so much data leaving and entering the UK, including the content of social media messages and emails.
