Wikipedia feels targeted by NSA, co-founder says

(Reuters) – The Wikimedia Foundation believes it can win its case against the U.S. National Security Agency because it has evidence that mass surveillance had caused it harm, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales said on Wednesday.

Wales also said he thought the lawsuit, brought Tuesday by Wikimedia and rights groups, would end up in the U.S. Supreme Court because either side is likely to appeal any ruling against it.

In the legal challenge to the spy agency, Wikimedia and eight other groups said one of the NSA’s mass surveillance programs violates privacy rights and makes people worldwide less likely to share sensitive information.
