Scary stuff


New House bill
H R 1981
"A commercial provider of an electronic communication service shall retain for a period of at least one year a log of the temporarily assigned network addresses the provider assigns to a subscriber to or customer of such service that enables the identification of the corresponding customer or subscriber information under subsection (c)(2) of this section."

This bill would require internet providers to keep a list of all websites that you visit and provide them to the government or anyone else could sue to get this info.

As someone who works with law enforcement let me say this is already being done. Our most popular subpoenas are 1) a person's IP address at some date and time, and 2) cell phone records covering some period of time. Both are very easy to get, and to my knowledge, we have never been turned down.

Sounds like an expansion or approval of what they already do. Sad.

The guy who sent it to me said it could be used by divorce attorneys to see if a spouse was visiting any sites that could be used against them.

Wow, I hope not. Right now the subpoena is nice because you have to show some sort of due cause or strong suspicion. And even then, when we get the records, we can only use what we need in court. You often spend eight hours to get a few minutes worth of information.

Talk about an invasion of privacy. The only way I could see it being of use in the above scenario is if the divorcee is a pediphile (spelling?)

Used by divorce attorneys--Yes. Used in Georgia--Yes. Used by my ex--YES. They were looking to see who I called and how many times I had either called or was called by any noticeable number in my phone. My understanding from my attorney was that the subpoenas were easy to get. Being as I run my HandyMan business with my phone, there were plenty of calls from females, and YES they did indeed call some of these to seek info as to why they had called my number. There was no "significant other" for them to track down. My lawyer had a ball in the judges chamber asking her attorney to explain why they had made these inquiries and why they had called eleven (11) of my customers asking somewhat personal questions. So, yes "Big Brother" is watching over all of us, to some extent.
