A NEW "digital wiretap" law that would let police force companies like Telstra to store copies of emails and text messages has come under fire from civil rights advocates.

The Cybercrime Legislation Amendment Bill was passed in the House of Representatives this week after being introduced in June. It will now be debated in the Senate.

The Bill would let authorities issue a "preservation notice" to telco companies forcing them to keep copies of a suspect's digital communications for up to 90 days while police applied for a warrant to access the data.

It would also extend the scope of existing cyber offences and allow for increased information-sharing between Australia and foreign countries.

Big Brother of Cyberspace has already arrived here in my globalist-controlled home country of Australia - Once the Land of Oz, now just like the Land of the Slaves, Home of the Cowards, who would not stand up and take action against the globalist government implementing controls over the Free Internet.



We are no stranger to the colossal data mining of every tidbit of info everyday Australians 'leak out' - i.e. get intercepted warrantlessly.

I have seen this comming and it is going to get worse. You see TPTB want to enslave as many as possible. The ones that are not criminals and speak out with a strong message, they will become the targets to be silenced some other way by Big Brother!!

Dear ironfalcon

Oh dear oh dear, you think you are only jus getting taped now. You have been taped for years, have a look at this en.wikipedia.org...(signals_intelligence) and one of the biggest facilities is on your door step at Pine Gap just outside Alice Springs.

They don’t just tap you they tap the world with your government permission.

With the passive complicity of the people, surely the incremental but domineering enslavement from all facets, even in our private lives, will be closely scrutinized.

Unfortunately, Australia is traveling down the road to censorship of the Free Internet, with the complicit approval of some Australians who never knew historically what this type of dictatorship does to its people, especially the prophetic warnings espoused by the American Founding Fathers (Thomas Jefferson, for example).

I know I have been tapped for years, going back to the Cold War era. I believe the government has been in grips with the Australian telecommunication industry since when, the end of World War II? It's just that the media has been bold enough to report on this issue after the warrantless tapping and data mining programs have been implemented, and it is past the point of no return where we can reverse this disturbing trend.

Anyways, government also has a checkered history of security violations with regards to handling of sensitive information. A laptop might be accidentally left in a cab, some disgruntled employee picks the lock to a filing cabinet or a handful of USB flash drives each 'grew a pair of legs and waltzed out of the intelligence HQ on their own'.

So should we be trusting a Big Brother-esque government lifted from the pages of 1984 and the film reels of the Terminator series with our sensitive and confidential information? The answer is NO.

Dear ironfalcon

The point here is you may know but the majority of them out there do not know.

Not only do they not know, when you tell them they do not believe you. Then when you smack it to them giving absolute proof of what you are saying they just shrug their shoulders and say well what can we do.

There is no such thing as free, there is no such thing as democracy. They do not exist today and most likely never have in history.

All this push for more and more disclosure and intervention is going the wrong way. It should be the government opening up its emails and accounting books. They are a lot stronger and do a lot more damage when they go off the rails. The power in the world becoming more centralised and unaccountable while the rights of the individual are falling away. The result is an increasing loss of self determination and enhanced methods of slavery. The most effective battles are fought without firing a shot as the winner takes all the resources without any losses. This is what is going on.
