The Obama Administration will allow tech companies to release more information about government data requests.

Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Facebook and Linked-In sued the government last summer. They wanted to be able to tell customers how many snooping requests they receive and are required by court order to comply with.

Under the agreement announced on Monday, Jan. 27 internet companies will be able to tell customers when they have been forced to hand over information to the government.
