I hope a lot of this is stopped in its tracks. As much as I support our government, if you give them an inch, they'll eventually want it all; that's when things will get hairy.

Just playing devils advocate, but don't phone companies keep logs of user activities?

I don't understand what the dealio is they used to have a program called carnivore, which has been replaced with a "commercial" type program designed to track interent use. If they want all of this info from the isp, they must be trying to tie it to the person responsible for the traffic.
I'm sure this is all legal thanks to the pat-riot act, that inch was given a long time ago.

ISPs keep your data anyway this is just the feds making a formal request so that people are on NOTICE more so than to have the data there.
Because if you know about it the more likely you are to behave.
How do you think so many lawsuits are able to subpoena your ISP for your email messages etc even old old ones.
