Spying begins on UK web users

The internet has now become the new spying ground. I want my movies and music and e-books that I use from the internet to be for myself and I dont want anyone else to know what I am getting from the internet. And what are they going to get out of the millions of customers that they have on internet?

And what if they dont like someone doing something on the internet?

I think that we need to have the privacy on the internet, and there should be legislation that ensures that we have the privacy that is necessary for us.

We reported last week on plans to enforce copyright law by forcing internet service providers to spy on consumers to detect and report every piece of copied music, movies, e-books, games and software.

Now one UK ISP, Virgin Media, is trialling some of the technology needed to do that on about 1.6 million of its customers.

It will do so by copying every packet of data that passes by, and looking for the digital signatures of data transferred using the popular bittorrent, gnutella, and edonkey file sharing protocols.
