The CALEA extension is described by CNET News in a sort of frightening report. Specifically, this:
"If you create a service, product, or app that allows a user to communicate, you get the privilege of adding that extra coding," an industry representative who has reviewed the FBI's draft legislation told CNET.
The FBI general counsel's office has drafted a proposed law that the bureau claims is the best solution: requiring that social-networking Web sites and providers of VoIP, instant messaging, and Web e-mail alter their code to ensure their products are wiretap-friendly
As this legislation has slipped by quite quietly, I wonder how it might affect the SE sites with regards to the sharing of personal information about its users (especially considering varying age groups). Obviously, if this is classified or something, then by all means, close this question, but I am just curious.
