Google Equate NSA With Chinese Hackers

It seems you cant trust the government to protect your piracy and its all legal  :/

Among the biggest revelations made by the Snowden documents so far was of course the fact that in addition to negotiating with companies like Yahoo and Google for user data via the front door (PRISM), the NSA was also busy covertly hacking into the links between company data centers for good measure (trust is the cornerstone of any good relationship, you know). The moves pretty clearly pissed off Google engineers, who swore at the agency and immediately began speeding up the already-underway process of encrypting traffic flowing between data centers.

Speaking at South By Southwest, Google's Eric Schmidt for the first time (that I'm aware of) unequivocally stated that what the NSA did wasn't just surveillance or your garden variety hack -- it was a direct attack on one of the United States' most successful companies:
 "We’re pretty sure right now that the information that’s inside of Google is safe from any government’s prying eyes, including the US government’s… We were attacked by the Chinese in 2010, we were attacked by the NSA in 2013. These are facts."

Its just a shame that very few care about the loss of their privacy these days, indeed many have become "sheep-like" folks who look to false promises of security and protection and cede up most of their other rights also.
