Introduced bill requires ISPs to log activity for two years


www.geek.com

New legislation taking aim at reducing child pornography could change the way Internet and e-mail providers keep tabs on all Internet activity if passed.

The new bill introduced last week by Representative Lamar Smith and Senator John Cornyn, both Republicans from Texas, is called SAFETY Act (Internet Stopping Adults Facilitating the Exploitation of Today’s Youth Act) and would require that Internet service providers and e-mail service providers to keep logs of Internet activity for at least two years. In addition to mandating the length providers must keep logs on all traffic activity, t

I think that what we have here is a REAL conspiracy, because the SAFETY Act will allow authorities full access to every e-mail you have sent or web site visited for a period of at least 2 years, probably longer.

Having wrapped this up in the umberella of safety provided by crimes associated with child pornography, the authorities have assured its passage through the legislative process.

Fairly obvious, but very effective.

Yeah...LEGALLY allow them access.....they've had access anyway for a number of years. At least this way they get most everyone on board with it. If you object, you must have something to hide.

I don't remember the artical saying this bill would give anyone "access" to email, just the legal right to track it. I think the Patriot Act gave them the right to read email already, no?
Scary tho. You'll end up on the no-fly list for visiting the same sites as people already on it... ATS probably. Bet we get the same in the UK soon.

Yes it's obvious the are building a database of who's doing what.. Most likely to decide their, "first strikes" in a police state environment.

After all to ignore the facts that it's coming is pretty ignorant. Some people, "hid" the Jews during the holocaust..

Whenever someone prefaces a new law or regulation with the words:

"We need to do it for the children"

be concerned.

What we have here is the perfect example of the least common denominator being forced on all. Because a couple of people act like perverts, we all must suffer.

No, my congress, you do not pass legislature aimed at making all suffer because of a small minority of people. If you do not like it, you go after the minority. You do not forsake the majority's rights.

This is just plane annoying. How they can BS a way to peep into everyone's eyes.



This is bad because conservatives and liberals have reasons for voting for it. No. Do not let them.

Go a. and get it going. bring it down.

Kiddie porn my ass! This is just another excuse for them to stick their collective nose even further into our business. Kiddie porn to regulate the internet, the war on drugs to regulate gun ownership, terrorism to regulate everything else. The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny (Aesop).
