Digital Rights Ireland comment on Ireland’s state sanctioned phone and e-mail tapping laws

Digital Rights Ireland Simon McGarr speaks to Today FM about Ireland’s phone and e-mail tapping laws by Bernard Tyers on Mixcloud

Digital Rights Ireland’s Simon McGarr has written a good post with thoughts on the FISA-style secret court hearings.

It looks like the law falls short of covering “Information society services” such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter. Those International services that are based in Ireland, and would run for the hills if it were to cover them.

I’d suggest also reading the original Irish Times article by Karlin Lillington which broke the story.
