Senate passes 'lite' data retention laws
« on: August 22, 2012, 09:21:37 pm »
Law enforcement agencies will be able to force internet service providers to store data on subscribers under new legislation approved by the Senate today.

The Cybercrime Legislation Amendment Bill 2011 amends the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act 1987, the Criminal Code Act 1995, the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 and the Telecommunications Act 1997.

The changes allow police to force telcos to retain data on persons of interest for a set period while a warrant is sought.

Such data may have been previously jettisoned by ISPs, which generally retain only enough subscriber information for customer service and billing.

Greens Senator Scott Ludlam described the reforms as a targeted, 'lite' version of the Federal Government's proposed data retention laws, and with more oversight.,senate-passes-lite-data-retention-laws.aspx

The creep of legislation is upon us once more, we have this sort of activity taking place right now in the uk and already the boundary of who can lay hands on your private data is being stretched to accomodate the scumbag media cartels monopolistsic wishes, always use encryption with everything before they have a chance to breach your privacy, I personally find it funny that most countries laws seem to say all folks are equal but it seems some or more equal than others in this world.
