Why have they been silent so long?

The US tech industry received a massive black eye as a result of the revelations that they'd been cooperating with illegal, thuggish operations of the NSA.

The appearance was that Yahoo and other US tech companies rolled over and handed the government criminals everything they asked for.

Now court documents show that at last one company, Yahoo, was fighting back.

The government threatened them with $250,000 in daily fines for not complying with their demands.

It appears that Yahoo resisted right up to the point that they were ordered by a corrupt judge to hand over the documents the NSA wanted.

Why have tech companies like Yahoo been quiet for so long about the bullying and other dirty tricks they'd been on the receiving end of?
