The FBI and the Justice Department asked the FCC to order companies offering voive over internet protocol (VoIP) to change their networks in order to allow police and federal agencies the ability to eavesdrop and spy on subscriber's conversations.

 


"Without such mandatory rules, the two agencies predicted in a letter to the FCC last month that "criminals, terrorists, and spies (could) use VoIP services to avoid lawfully authorized surveillance." The letter also was signed by the Drug Enforcement Administration."

Is that right before they begin to censor the Internet? Seems like a good way to sneak up on that idea...
