U.S. Anti-Terror Laws Deter Canadians From Using Google Services

This is a follow-up to my post of March 24, 2008 entitled Canadians Organizations Fear U.S. Spying on Web-Based Collaboration Tools.

In that post, I described how a number of Canadian institutions are having second thoughts about using Web-based collaborative tools from U.S.-based companies such as Google who keep search logs on their U.S. servers because of the wide-ranging powers granted to American security agencies under the Patriot Act.

David T.S. Fraser, a lawyer who writes the Canadian Privacy Law Blog, was interviewed for an podcast on the issue. is an IT and e-commerce newsletter published by the UK law firm UK firm Pinsent Masons LLP.

I think this is the valid reason for the hesitation to working with them. The other party should try to clear their position other wise the canadian institutions are reluctant to to using the google services.
