House Committee passes bill requiring your ISP to retain your assigned IP for 12 months
Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 19-10 for H.R. 1981, a data-retention bill that will require your ISP to spy on everything you do online and save records of it for 12 months. California Rep Zoe Lofgren, one of the Democrats who opposed the bill, called it a ‘data bank of every digital act by every American’ that would ‘let us find out where every single American visited Web sites.’
Actually the bill requires they retain the IP address that is assigned to you. That, with access to the website logs could make a picture of your web presence.
