CALEA passes civil liberties challenge

cjovalle writes "The Center for Democracy and Technology reports that "a federal appeals court today ruled 2-1 that telephone regulators and the FBI can control the design of Internet services in order to make government wiretapping easier." Several groups contributed to the civil liberties challenge, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Americal Library Association. The EFF has a page how CALEA harms civil liberties and innovation. Service providers affected by this law include universities and libraries."

Don't go all nuts...

This is the telephone regulators, the FCC, the FBI and telephone companies. I can just see the FBI guys standing outside the telephone company premisis waiting for the installer to show up between noon and 5PM.

Make it easy for them, record all your calls and mail them to the NSA.
