Submission + - Government demands universal wiretapping

StonyandCher writes: Sweeping reforms will make it easier than ever for law enforcement to intercept communications if amendments to the Telecommunications (Interceptions) Act are agreed upon by a Senate standing committee. The Australian government is pushing a bill to force all telecommunications providers to facilitate lawful data interception across fixed and mobile telephone systems, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Instant Messaging (IM) and chat room discussions. This follows from a story earlier this week where the Australian government is legislating to allow employers to snoop on employees' email and IM conversations.
