Cameron presses ahead with internet spying
The UK government of David “bacon sandwich” Cameron is pushing ahead with plans to update internet surveillance laws, despite criticism from privacy activists, communications firms and three parliamentary committees.
The Home Office published the latest version of its Investigatory Powers Bill which had been released in draft form last November.
Home secretary Theresa May claims the draft is clearer clarifies that a company will only be forced to remove “electronic protections”, such as encryption, that it has applied to users’ messages when it is “technically feasible” to do so.
The earlier version suggested firms could be required to decrypt messages for which they do not have a key, which is impossible.
