I think this qualifies as "putting Rightscon's mission at risk" (https://www.rightscon.org/fundingpolicy/), since those companies are a major structural reason that privacy is impossible for many whose rights are threatened. What do you think?
Wow, in case you missed this when it passed a few months ago...
