Sacrebleu! The NSA isn't the only security agency to collect data. In fact, France's PRISM-like program is going very strong with thousands of trillions of metadata elements stored in a Parisian basement, according to a report from French newspaper Le Monde.

It is deemed illegal by the CNIL, the French data protection authority but it is not as clear as it seems. Nasdaq argued in federal court that it cannot be sued by class-action because of its legal status as a self-regulatory organization. Nasdaq is being sued over the botched Facebook IPO.
