Don't Let Congress Order Internet Companies to Spy on You: Oppose the Data Retention Bill

The U.S. House of Representatives is currently considering H.R. 1981, a bill that would order all of our online service providers to keep new logs about our online activities, logs to help the government identify the web sites we visit and the content we post online. This sweeping new "mandatory data retention" proposal treats every Internet user like a potential criminal and represents a clear and present danger to the online free speech and privacy rights of millions of innocent Americans.

Tell your Representative to oppose this dangerous bill, before this week's critical vote.

H.R. 1981 would impose sweeping requirements on a broad swath of online service providers to keep new records on all of their customers, just in case the police ever want to investigate any of them. In particular, the bill would require any "provider of an electronic communication service or remote computing service" to keep for at least 18 months a record of which users were assigned to particular network addresses at particular times. .....

The bill is in the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of which Rep Sensenbrenner (Author of AWA) is Chairman.
