Advocacy Groups Petition FCC For Stay On Web Wiretapping Compliance

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on November 24, 2005

Press release: “The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), the Center for Democracy and Technology, and representatives of industry, academia, librarians and others today filed a joint request for a stay with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), arguing that the Commission has been “unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious” in demanding that broadband Internet access providers and interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers include backdoors for wiretaps in their services. The stay requested that the Commission should either postpone its Spring 2007 “full compliance” deadline for implementing these taps, or halt the requirement entirely.”
