Congress May Make ISPs Spy on You

Recommended Posts

A prominent Republican on Capitol Hill has prepared legislation that would rewrite Internet privacy rules by requiring that logs of Americans' online activities be stored, CNET News.com has learned.

 

 

The proposal comes just weeks after Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Internet service providers should retain records of user activities for a "reasonable amount of time," a move that represented a dramatic shift in the Bush administration's views on privacy.

 

Instead of describing exactly what information Internet providers would be required to retain about their users, the Internet Safety Act gives the attorney general broad discretion in drafting regulations. At minimum, the proposal says, user names, physical addresses, Internet Protocol addresses and subscribers' phone numbers must be retained.

I think it sucks that privacy is swept away all the times. :(

Logging/spying sucks.

I know I'm not an American, but I have kinda noticed that when a 'proposal' from Capitol Hill is drafted (made public knowledge) it usually is 'an admission of guilt' or, 'have been doing it for many years' (bit like our own government)
