- The government believes it has the power to intercept, search and block our communications – if they’re done over the Internet.
- The media companies want to ignore the right to a fair trial and skip straight to the punishment phase – if you download music files instead of copying a CD.
- Border agencies and the Police believe they have a right to unlimited access to your private data – but only if it’s on computer, not on paper.
- The government wants to be able to punish others by disconnecting them from the Internet – but we wouldn't ban people from using paper and pen.
There are those who think that they can ignore our existing rights and freedoms because new technology has made them obsolete.
We don’t agree.
