FCC okay with “packet” tapping

  1. Your assessment of the two different issues is right on the money.

    We cannot create technology that works against the people by letting it be used in harmful ways without a means to intercede.

    Regulation will come, once everyone clearly understands what aspects need to be regulated. It is too early for that, but it is never to early to prevent criminal activity or worse.

  2. Yes, you are right. They are different issues, and VoIP taps are inevitable.

    As long as there’s a court order required (which the Patriot Act sometimes dodges) and they aren’t using head-end tapping mechanisms like Carnivore (that sort through ALL ISP traffic), then I’m ok with it.

    The idea is fine. I may have issue with the way it’s implemented.

  3. Guys,

    All this requirement really does is provide the motivation for the creation of a brand new naming/numbering system with occasional links to the ever declining POTS system.

    Remember DNS is merely a fiat service.
