Marc Rotenberg , executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Centre , said: "It's always been a little bit behind the curtain as to what internet companies do when they actually receive these requests."
Yahoo said in one brief that the government's requests were "unconstitutional because they permitted warrantless surveillance of US persons' private communications without prior judicial review, and were not reasonable."
The guide also stated that the information could be made public under the Official Information Act. "Classifications are used to grade information on the basis of the damage that would result from unauthorised disclosure and to specify the protective measures to be applied."
