    :rolleyes: Canada preps Internet snoopers charter

    The Canadian Government has published proposals to increase law enforcement powers to monitor the country's citizens online.

    A consultation document published last weekend by the Canadian Department of Justice contains proposals that would compel ISPs to hand over the names and addresses of customers to the police on request, curtailing rights to remain anonymous online.

    Changes in Canada's Criminal Code widen police search powers, require ISPs to retain customer Web logs for up to six months and (less controversially) to outlaw possession of computer viruses are also proposed.

    Read more.....

    The other shoe has dropped! Once again I get to be a protester!

    BTW, there is an address in the article for rebuttal!

    Governments just keep jumping on the bandwagon, don't they?
    Too bad. I thought Canada was resisting the current drive to make us all good little law abiding automatons, with no will of our own.

    well I wouldn't worry too much yet about us up here. The gov here is pretty behind the times, this change doesn't even bring the gov control up to the levels they are elsewhere.

    For instance, a man successfully defended in court his right to collect and distribute child pornography online. If THAT isn't evidence of perhaps too FEW regulations, I don't know what is.

    Currently law enforcement powers online around here is basically zero.

    The only way to stop it is to start black mailing people in power by handing over there online activities to the public on the Internet.

    A certin president looks at a certain porn site ect ect.

    if they make these laws then they should apply to them to.

    i bet they change there tune when there personal information is scattered across the web on there online activity :Devill grin

    Thing is, when everyone sues particular government, the law that's likely to change is the one allowing people to sue 'em.
