I’m a regular curator of daily links, and like to give overviews of my collection of curated links and posts. This is partly as there are some good sources and articles in here and as I am working on a research project which I started based on a number of books I read.

I’m sure you’ll find something interesting in the items below – there are some gems in the list – and I dare to hazard the guess you might learn something you wanted to know. 🙂

GPS Wiretapping Lawsuit

with one comment

On BetaNews I just saw that:

“The American Civil Liberties Union and Electronic Frontier Foundation are suing the Justice Dept. for “documents, memos, and guides” about procedures used to track individuals through cell phones.

“The [ACLU] and the [EFF] aren’t looking for money … Instead, the two civil liberty advocacy groups want information about whether and how the government might be using the location capabilities in cell phones to find out where people are.”1

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals had already upheld the ruling that the FBI was not allow to spy on in-car computers, which was made possible by the system, “… a 2003 lawsuit revealed that systems such as OnStar can be used for eavesdropping on passenger conversations”

  1. US Justice Dept. sued for info on cellular tracking practices
  2. Court to FBI: No spying on in-car computers
  3. FBI taps cell phone mic as eavesdropping tool
