Wired reports that Yahoo fought a "secret and scrappy court battle" to resist the NSA's PRISM, which stopped when they were threatened with a "massive $250,000 a day fine if it didn't comply."
[...] shortly after the program was exposed, Yahoo’s dogged battle with the Feds to resist its inclusion in the program came to light only after another document leaked by Snowden exposed the company’s legal fight against the FISA Court order.
Yahoo fought back on Fourth Amendment grounds, insisting that such a request required a probable-cause warrant and that the surveillance request was too broad and unreasonable and, therefore, violated the Constitution.
