After an appeal last week, AT&T
has temporarily delayed
the case against them while apparently prepare themselves better. The delay only lasts until tomorrow, at which point it is possible for it to be delayed again. The case, which focuses around violations of privacy that AT&T supposedly committed, was filed by the EFF
and could have very seriously implications for not only AT&T, but the communications industry as a whole. While there is no disputing that AT&T was replicating user's data to be surveyed by the Government, the big question is whether or not they overstepped their bounds. AT&T tried to get the case dismissed, but that was rejected. And thank goodness for that, because cases like this could set the pace for the future development of Internet communications.
