Submission + - Aussie govt says wiretap laws fine, telcos 'wrong' (zdnet.com.au)

mask.of.sanity writes: A top bureaucrat from the Australian Attorney-Generals department has said telcos are wrong to complain about changes to the country's wiretapping laws, which will force them to report every product and network system change to law enforcement for approval, lest they affect the ability to intercept communications . The telcos argue there are simply too many products and network architecture changes to report and that it would become overbearing. It's the latest in a string of changes to communications law in the country, and comes as the government mulls data retention and the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.
