mask.of.sanity (1228908) writes "The Australian Government's privacy commissioner has slammed its plans to implement a data retention scheme, in which it would asked telcos and internet to store the browsing and calling logs of Australian subscribers.

He said the scheme would put user privacy in jeopardy because data will lie around at the behest of law enforcement.

The Aussie scheme would be based on that which exists in Europe under the EU Directive. The directive aims to give law enforcement authorities the ability to ascertain the identity of a person using a public network to communicate by mobile, fixed line, email, or internet. The directive defines "data" to be collected as "traffic data and location data and the related data necessary to identify the subscriber or user"."
