Thats all l was trying to say. But then l dont live in the US, but like many 
other nations who knows what the NSA is up to. I think we need a bit more 
humour in our lives. :) This does not mean l support them. But, why not make 
some humour out of the NSA as the butt of all jokes ? :) for all the things US 
nationals despise ?

NSA Makes all Email Use Privilege Waiving?
Posted: 04 Nov 2013 03:00 AM PST

Puzzle me this: If a lawyer conversed with a client in front of a law 
enforcement representative, would the conversation be privileged?

 Answer: No.

 Conversations held in the presence of any third party, let alone one 
representing the government, would constitute a waiver of privilege.

 Previously on 3Geeks (and perhaps too many times) we have  tackled the subject 
of the use of free email services and how that waives privilege. But now the 
NSA has upped the ante on the topic, basically spreading it to all email.

 Unless you live under a rock with no wifi, you will be aware that the NSA is  
tracking global email communications and storing them in Utah (a nice place to 
visit). So, as a lawyer should you now expect that a government agency is 
obtaining copies of all of your confidential client communications? If so, you 
might want to ....

 Oh never mind. If we actually took this rule seriously, all lawyers would be 
encrypting their email communications. And we know they are not and no one is 
asking them to do so.

 I withdraw the statement.
