Can They Hear You Now?
How the FBI eavesdrops on Internet phone calls (and why it sometimes can't).

By David S. Bennahum

The Federal Communications Committee and the Justice Department are at loggerheads over a new problem in the war on terror: how to listen in on Internet phone calls. Thanks to the blistering growth of VoIP—Voice over Internet Protocol—services, which have been adopted by approximately 10 million people worldwide so far, law enforcement officials now worry that wiretapping may one day become technically obsolete.

I thought the above would be an interesting topic for the philosphers amungst us to discuss.  :-D  I guess there's two questions here: 1) Is this the dawning of the age where technology limits the scope of law makers, and 2) Is this a good thing??? In otherwords, should society be ruled by law or technology???

I naturally gravitate to the side of technology. But laws are there for a reason.

We all know that the FBI (et al) will always find a way, simply by using the technology themselves.

This whole article could be nothing more than disinformation! To make the terrorist feel more secure about thetechnology they are using!
