To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A copy of any objections to agency data gathering practices received by this agency from telecommunications and web service providers. Please limit this request to objection received between 2008 and the date that this request is processed.

Please include objections to both classified and unclassified data gathering programs, redacting or omitting portions of complaints that include properly classified information while including the substance of the objections touching on non-operational details.

Please include informal and informal complaints, as well as contacts by corporate legal advisors seeking the cessation, restriction, adjustment, or other modifications of such programs.

Please include, but do not limit this request, to the following companies:

Yahoo!
Google
Microsoft
Research in Motion
Skype/eBay
Time Warner
Verizon
AT&T

For complaints or protests that are classified, please perform a mandatory declassification review (MDR) of these complaints.

Please note that these types of complaints, redacted of operational details, were recently ruled releasable:

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Michael Morisy

Hi,

I'd like to narrow and perfect the below request to search for documents within the CIA's legal affairs offices as well as any departments that regularly, in the course of their operations, act as liaisons with telecommunications and service provider companies.

Thank you for your assistance with this request.

Best,

Michael Morisy
