Not even close. They created a separate data collection bill and rushed it through congress a few months ago. The data collection continues also this only applies to landline phones.

>Landline phones
So this literally only affects baby boomers, who most likely already thought that the data collection was a-ok because "muh terrorism".

>The U.S. intelligence community on Sunday will cease its bulk collection of telephone metadata.
The keyword being "its". Data will still be collected, just "technically" not by them.
>>
>>51586948
Not even. The "USA Freedom Act" basically renewed the data collection, the only difference is now the data collection is handled by the phone companies and the NSA is supposed to get a warrant to access the information. The NSA has abused warrants in the past by getting a warrant that covers "every subscriber under company X". That's not legal but no one is watching what they're doing with the secret courts they get to use.

So it literally does nothing.
OK then.
>>
>>51587033
Exactly.

Plus, companies like AT&T, who willingly let the NSA mirror all of their traffic, will turn over the data without a warrant or even a request.
Mass surveillance isn't going anywhere, even if it needs to. The NSA is actually collecting so much data it can't process it all, and good old fashioned police work has exponentially better results.

>>51587070
If there was any sort of oversight in the issuing of warrants then it could plausibly do some sort of good but that flaw doesn't seem to have been addressed so expect things to continue like before.

oh, so it's basically nothing

what the actual fuck is wrong with you?

This also says nothing about the literal recordings of every phone call that they store.
Hell, even if that was ended, there's also the equivalent program the FBI runs.

Sure they end it.

Sure.

>>51586870

This is just a sham to fool people not keeping up with this stuff. They haven't ended anything, just moving shit around and calling it something else like always.
