EU condemned over planned snoop laws

Author: JT Smith

BBC News: "Proposals are being put forward to the European Union
to make communications companies keep records of all
phone calls, e-mails, faxes and net use for seven years
just in case police forces need to search them during
criminal investigations.

Civil liberty groups and net watchdogs have
condemned the plans and said the laws, if passed,
would give law enforcement agencies powers denied to
repressive regimes."
