+ - Utah considers warrantless internet subpoenas->

Submitted by seneces
seneces (839286) writes "The Utah State Legislature is considering a bill, HB150, granting the Attorney General's Office the ability to demand customer information from internet or cell phone companies via an administrative subpoena, with no judicial review. This is an expansion of a similar law passed last year, which granted that ability when "it is suspected that a child-sex crime has been committed", and has led to more than one non-judicial request for subscriber information per day since becoming law. Pete Ashdown, owner of a local ISP and 2006 candidate for the United States Senate, has discussed his position and the effects of this bill. This would undoubtably set an uncomfortable precedent for ISPs being compelled to release subscriber information on the mere suspicion of a crime, or even "electronic communication harassment"."
