Internet Surveillance

The ACLU is urging action on the FCC's approval of Ashcroft's request to expand existing phone surveillance powers so that they apply to the internet. Of course, they see this as an invitation to government snooping; whereas, this is the logical next step of regulations that already exist.

It's unfortunate that the pace of federal action is so slow in this arena. Instead of dicking around with creating a secondary intelligience branch, the government should hunker down and address the critical issues of the cyber age: copyright law, identity protection, surveillance, network security.
