The rebranding of the act
Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, which are the bits that compel telecoms companies to release records [bulk collection of metadata] to the government's intelligence services, expired on the 1st of June 2015. Because section 215 divided lawmakers when it was first introduced in 2001 for intruding on the rights of private citizens, it was passed with a five year sunset clause which Congress routinely renewed for the section to be applicable, up until Edward Snowdenâ€™s revelations added to the talks on the usefulness of such powers.
Congress thus passed the USA FREEDOM Act the following day on the 2nd of June 2015. This act ostensibly restricted the powers of the NSA, whilst altogether provided for the resumption of immunity from prosecution afforded to telecoms companies in terms of divulging internet records, telephone records or any other information from the public.
