The federal privacy watchdog is trying to help the Conservative government find a compromise in its contentious bid to bolster Internet surveillance powers.
A blueprint solicited by the privacy commissioner's office proposes new procedures to give police and spies key information about Internet users while retaining the principle of judicial oversight, a memo obtained under the Access to Information Act shows.....
The federal legislation would allow police, intelligence and Competition Bureau officers access to Internet subscriber information including name, address, telephone number, email address and Internet protocol address without a warrant. An IP address is the numeric label assigned to a computer on the Internet.
Currently, release of such data, held by Internet service providers, is voluntary.
Hell, the government doesn't need C-30 .... they can get the information by simply claiming a copyright violation just like Voltage has done. Presto, chango, hand over the information right f!cking now.
