6 Tech Firms Opposing UK’s Snooper's Charter

Major US tech giants have joined their forces in order to call for major changes to the UK’s Investigatory Powers bill, also referred to as the “snooper’s charter”. Companies, including Apple and Google, warn that the bill needs “important amendments” to avoid setting dangerous precedents that may have wider ramifications all over the world.

Apple, which had previously insisted on going it alone in its efforts to lobby the UK parliament, finally joined Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Twitter and Yahoo for a group submission. The tech giants submitted evidence to the public bill committee, criticizing the Investigatory Powers bill for the proposed establishment of extraterritorial jurisdiction, which would allow the UK to force companies to comply even if they are based overseas.

The tech firms told the government that international agreements would be the better option and that the discussions between the countries in this regard would be more fruitful. In the meantime, the UK users of the firms’ technology have concerns over the fact that the bill will enable the government to force the firms to strip encryption from communications. Taking into account that the encryption is built into some of their services, like Apple’s iMessage or Facebook’s WhatsApp, it would require their complete rewrite.

We should remind you that all of the tech firms had previously attacked the snooper’s charter late last year – at the time, Apple filed a separate brief from the peers. However, when the final version of the bill was released in early March, it was still unclear whether the government had listened to any of their concerns. Some believe that the bill was being rushed through too fast to have proper scrutiny.

BaBaDapper avatarWould the people trying to introduce this be happy if it were to happen to them on a 'similar' basis? Like having their post opened? People going through their rubbish bins? Someone following them around to see where they go, who do they see, when and where? And maybe even asked what they just said to that person. Doubt it.

Meh but terrorists etc need to be screwed over so *shrug*
