A security and privacy expert ‘Christopher Soghoian’ has revealed that Google are charging the US governement $25 per user that it wishes to spy on.

Sioghan took advantage of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by requesting a document which details four years worth of spending by the Drugs Enforcement Agency on wiretaps and pen registers.  A wiretap will retrieve phone and web discussions, pen register is intended to retrieve numbers and addresses of those communicating. The document exposed by Soghoian shows a total of $73.4 million was spent on surveilance by the DEA on surveillance in 2010. Huge numbers there that Microsoft appear to be missing out on having made the choice not to charge the government for user surveillance!
