Mandatory Data Retention – Invasive, Risky, Unnecessary, Ineffective (PDF; 98 KB)
"Legislation has been proposed at the state and federal level to require providers of Internet services to retain for up to one year records to permit the identification of subscribers to such services, and the Department of Justice recently told Internet industry representatives that it is considering a two-year mandatory data retention proposal. The full scope of the concept remains undefined, but it could encompass not only ISPs but also website operators, telephone companies, cable companies, wireless carriers, employers who provide employees with Internet access, hotels, libraries, universities, and WiFi hotspot providers. These proposals raise serious concerns about privacy, security, cost, and effectiveness."
