Today the House Judiciary Committee has voted to recommend H.R. 1981.
Should this make legislation and become a law Internet providers would be required to maintain a year’s worth of data that would contain what web sites you visit using their service and the type of content you provide online. By maintaining records of your IP address law enforcement officials would be able to contact service providers and obtain any information about your online activity at any given time or date. This would be for ALL customers, not simply ones suspected of any crime or wrongdoing. Currently mandatory data retention framework’s most well-known cases are in European nations in which the data is maintained from 6 months up to two years, though it faces intense criticism.
