It would also — and in practice this is likely more important — challenge government surveillance demands of dubious legality or constitutionality." Does this have a chance of success at protecting citizen's privacy and due process rights? Or will Congress quickly change the law to require even more stringent "legal intercept"? Fundraising tool Kickstarter has already turned him down, forcing him to go to IndieGoGo to raise donations."
