nsa ‘prism’ resulted in lost business

US companies on the losing end of this story. This might be especially true for foreign regulated companies (a Canadian healthcare company is cited in the article).

I suspect the impact will be limited. Other countries aren’t necessarily safer or more privacy-promoting, and most companies aren’t heavily regulated like healthcare, so their focus will be on cost, uptime, and technology considerations rather than privacy. Still, this economic impact is expected and is a good thing overall.
