Spy Hard

Not worried about the new search and surveillance powers that the state is hoping to pass through under the MSM radar? You should be. If the ability to remote access citizens' computers without a warrant, or install remote video and audio into homes and offices without reasonable cause, doesn't worry you, consider this: in a police state, every citizen is a terrorist.

Aardvark goes large on the matter, and Nat Rad talks to a Chapman Tripper and a computer security lecturer about the new SaS Bill too. I think that flash new Supreme Court is going to get a hell of a workout over the next ten years.

The Tuhoe Terror Trial is just the beginning.

UPDATE: Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff talks to bFM's The Wire about the agency's concern over the SaS plans.
