My point is that as soon as you start trying to police the internet, they're going to have to siphon through everything you're doing.
You going to be watching some pr0n on your own, in the privacy?
The EU wants companies to be able to be there right with you, just to 'make sure you're not stealing their copyrights'
You going to be sending a PRIVATE
dirty email to your girlfriend?
The EU wants some 50 year old bureaucratic and probably perverted security 'expert' to read through it to make sure you're not sending a copyrighted music file with it.
You want to browse the internet for something fairly innocent, just out of curiosity, let's say for example a disposable camera?
EU terrorist experts could be reading it, believing it to be the makings of some sort of bomb.
It's not just the fact that people are genuinely breaking the law are now being monitored, but EVERYBODY so they can allegedly catch people (Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?). That's where the privacy issue comes in. Maybe you don't mind, if you've got corporate or government eyes, watching you everywhere you go. In the middle of town (CCTV etc.)? Sure, acceptable I guess, philosophically I wouldn't be in favour, but.. people can see you whilst you're in public anyway. Whilst you're in your own home, allegedly alone? Sounds like some sort of horror movie to me.Edited by Torched-Geek - 7/7/08 at 9:24am
