+ - India Sleepwalks into Surveillance Society

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "ZeroPaid has a fascinating roundup of news stories surrounding the latest surveillance laws passed in India including a first-hand account of someone writing from inside India. The legislation in question is the The Information Technology (Amendment) Bill, 2006 which was recently passed in an the Indian parliament. Things you can't do with the new legislation include surfing for news in Bolleywood and looking up porn on the internet. The legislation also allows all transmissions over the internet to be monitored for any form of lawbreaking and permits a sub-inspector to break into your house to make sure you aren't browsing porn on your computer. Yikes!"
