Attorney General wants to snoop on all your Internet Surfing records and your email records too.
Last Friday Attorney General Gonzales and the FBI were discussing with the major ISP Providers ways to spy on all of our records of where we surfed to.
The way it is now, the current law is based from a 1996 federal law called the
Electronic Communication Transactional Records Act.
Which regulates data preservation.
It requires Internet providers to retain any "record" in their possession for 90 days
"Upon the request of a governmental entity."
This now new twist can be referred to as
Preservation "versus" Retention
Now to this average joe, this new push for "Retention information" coming from the Attorney General's Office smells of government spying and civil rights violations to our constitutional right to privacy!
As Net Nutrality is fought for and civil rights slip away this issue is about to impasse if not stopped real soon.
