Surveillance and Its Discontents

June 12, 2014 - A Conversation Across Cyberspace with Edward Snowden and John Perry Barlow

“What we really need to think about is what we want to allow in the rules of play to be in society not just for governments but for everyone. There is an organization of academics and specialists, experts on surveillance policies and human rights around the world who have been working extensively on this and last year they proposed something called the International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance. It's called the Thirteen Principles and basically it boils down to any information that's collected and used has to be used for purposes that are necessary and proportionate to the sort of case that we're encountering.” Edward Snowden
