... Creepy Billboards That Say 'Your Data Should Belong To The NSA'

•, Aaron Taube
In the past week, several online media outlets have noted a series of plain, white billboards that have popped up in New York and California bearing ominous surveillance-state messages like "YOUR DATA SHOULD BELONG TO THE NSA" and "THE INTERNET SHOULD BE REGULATED."
Today, the peer-to-peer content sharing service BitTorrent claimed responsibility for the billboards, saying the Big Brother-esque statements reflect the harmful attitudes people have accepted in exchange for the convenience of using the internet.

In a post to the company's blog, BitTorrent vice president of marketing Matt Mason said these attitudes are "an assault on freedom" that the public should refuse to accept. 

Instead of allowing large web platforms to collect personal information, Mason said internet users could turn to BitTorrent's for secure data transfer outside the reach of government surveillance agencies.
