UK ISPs stand up to Home Office plans #

The Guardian reports that the Internet Service Providers Association has written to David Blunkett:

“[…] refusing to sign up to plans to give law enforcement agencies access to the records of British web and email users […] the Guardian has learned that internet service providers have told the Home Office that they will not voluntarily stockpile the personal records of their customers for long periods […] The apparent collapse of the negotiations may leave Mr Blunkett facing a choice between using his reserved powers under the legislation to force internet providers to comply or dropping the measure in response to political and political opposition […]”
