Actually the big guns have come out to join our fight, the police and the security services (aka MI5 and MI6), they have pointed out something we have said here for a long time, if you drive folks to encryption then it will make it nearly impossible to monitor terrorists and pedophiles in real time, its great to see such common sense being spoken against lord mandelsons "suspension of democracy and justice" plans.http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article6885923.ece
The police and intelligence services are calling on the Government to drop plans to disconnect persistent internet pirates because they fear that this would make it harder to track criminals online.
The Times understands that both the security services and police are concerned about the plans, believing that threatening to cut off pirates will increase the likelihood that they will escape detection by turning to encryption.
Law enforcement groups, which include the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (Soca) and the Metropolitan Police’s e-crime unit, believe that more encryption will increase the costs and workload for those attempting to monitor internet traffic. One official said: “It will make prosecution harder because it increases the workload significantly.”
The fate of our nations technical infrastructure should not rest on the whim of an unelected big media supporter, this article makes it clear that the recording industry are aiding potential terrorists by their thoughtless and selfish actions
