Another step toward censorship and the confinement of the free speach. After the WIPO Broadcast Treaty, Bush administration is defending the new rules for wiretaping internet phone calls. This actions have gone way too far and seems that they don't intend to stop.
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is defending new federal rules making it easier for police and the FBI to wiretap Internet phone calls.

A broad group of civil liberties and education groups — and a leading technology company — say the U.S. has improperly applied telephone-era rules to a new generation of Internet services.

Lawyers were expected to square off Friday over the Federal Communications Commission regulations before a three-judge panel for the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Columbia. In an unrelated case last year affecting digital television, two of the same three judges ruled that the FCC had significantly exceeded its authority and threw out new FCC rules requiring anti-piracy technologies.

Yet again Bush and his administration his making clear for everybody the intentions to control every step of american citizen's lives. Personally I think that so far they exceeded every limit and day after day are coming up with new ideas, worst then the previous ones. And this thing is gotta STOP.
As David B. Sentelle, a US Circuit Judge said commenting this anti piracy rules by the Congres: "You can't rule the world"
