"A patent application published by the USPTO last Thursday reveals that Microsoft has been researching, since before December 2009, how to redirect VoIP calls to intercept devices and law enforcement agents. The method disclosed by the patent application is devious—subverting routing protocols so that packets sent by any person tagged by a monitoring request will be routed through a recording agent." -- Guessing this is not just a speculative filing. It covers all uses of VoIP including in-game and via-IM.

Great, balanced reference on the issues surrounding your privacy on the internet. Very worthwhile reading.

If this is true, it punches a massive hole in the integrity of software that the whole hacker community relies upon.

"Every email, phone call and website visit is to be recorded and stored after the Coalition Government revived controversial Big Brother snooping plans."

Despite promises from both the Conservatives and the Lib-Dems during the election to end the surveillance state, the crazy, abusive idea of making ISPs keep records of every UK internet connection and phone call for at least a year so that they can be used for investigations have been revived. Their earlier promises are still there on the web, and we still remember them, yet they have absolutely no shame. I am disgusted.

Insightful yet typically dystopian view of Google from the great William Gibson.

Once again "protecting children" is being used as the pretext to introduce a badly-considered stream of legislation that would result in web searches being retained and analysed - yes, more surveillance. Apparently MEPs are being told just that it's for the children, without having the consequence that every search by every citizen will be archived and retained. Write to your MEP and ask them not to sign or to withdraw their signature.

This is a very worrying development that looks like an abuse of power. It's extending the law surely beyond where it was ever intended by lawmakers and then being supported by courts. One of these cases will need to make its way to the Supreme Counrt. There's just as worrying a trend in the UK, of police using massively heavy photographic activity against the public while unjustly restricting photography by the publoc.

I wonder if the people who put up the sign understood the irony of it all.

I have so far seen no mention of the challenges of the surveillance society by any political party in the materials delivered to my home.

While the front benches of the main parties try (hopefully unwittingly) to criminalise kids over copyright, rob photographers of their income, shut down nationwide wifi and provide a way for corporations to censor citizens and competitiors, the police are running roughshod over our rights using exactly the same technologies.

The Digital Economy that our politicians have in mind is second-hand, relayed to them via lobbyists. Today is the day to contact your MP and the candidates in the upcoming election and tell them that you, a first-hand participant in the Digital Economy, are not satisfied.

This rally covers an important area that I don't see mentioned in any of the advance election materials delivered so far. Which party is going to stand on the "end the surveillance society" platform at this election?
