If a judge is involved, fine

That's the way the system is supposed to work: warrants/court orders.

This is like paying extra to have locks on your doors that the government can open with a master key, it's not even close to how the "system is supposed to work"

And the law mandating ability to tap conversations is many years old. The telcos just ignored the law. If they won't comply fine the hell out of them.

No way.
No company should be keeping any kind of identifying logs of their customers.
The end user customer should have 100% control of any identifying logs, records, saved emails. The only way a court should be able to get these records is GOING THROUGH the end user only.

Gaining access to someones private logs, records, and saved emails is like making someone testify against themselves.

It is against the 5th Amendment of the constitution for self incrimination.

Right, like the way the government used warrants/court orders in the warrantless wiretapping scandal?

Laws no longer mean anything to the US government. They're just a way to force their will on others.

This is like the TSA approved luggage locks. I guess they want the Internet to be locked the same way. Yeeesh!
