TICS bill

With all the hoo haa about the GCSB bill, I almost forgot about the TICS bill. In a nutshell, it will make **MANDATORY** for large carriers to essentially open a backdoor to their systems. Upshot, it makes it essentially a trivial task to spy on the public, and I would be willing to bet money on this, it will all be without a warrant.Something else that is pointed out on a stuff article, section 14 of the GCSB bill essentially allows the GCSB to “filter” electronic content, without a warrant. And it says nothing in that section about overseas agencies, so expect that the likes of the US will have a free reign here. Oh well, we will find out tomorrow what will happen …
