MI6: All your data belong to us

The British government is developing a proposal to centralize the data-retention practices of UK communications firms. Under current law, communications providers are required to retain certain kinds of data about their customers for a year, and to make that data available in response to government subpoenas. Under the new proposal, these records would have to be automatically submitted to a centralized government database. The government believes this will facilitate law enforcement access to the information, although a court order would still be required to access it. (ArsTechnica)
