CALEA/VoIP Fight [5:29 pm]

Network Providers Fight FCC on VOIP Wiretapping

Protesting that new federal wiretapping rules will stifle innovation and require the re-engineering of private IP networks at a huge expense, universities, ISPs, libraries and privacy organizations, along with Sun Microsystems Inc., are going to court to overturn the rules.

[...] Sun joined the Center for Democracy and Technology, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Pulver.com, Comptel and the American Library Association in filing a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

[...] “The expansion of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act to the Internet is troubling, and it is not what Congress intended,” [Sen. Patrick] Leahy said. “We certainly need to hear whether law enforcement agencies are actually experiencing interception problems on the Internet, since the last thing we should do is fix a problem that does not exist.”
