Encryption, Warrants And The FBI
Last Thursday, the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing focused on law enforcement surveillance of modern Internet services.

Although both the New York Times and CNET have stories on the hearing, I don’t think either publication covered the important details (nor did they take the time to extract and post video clips).

What happens next?

Last week’s hearing was just the first step in what will likely be a long battle. There will be more hearings, and eventually, the FBI will return with draft legislation. In the mean time, all the major tech companies in Silicon Valley will no doubt continue to engage in private, high-pressure negotiations with senior FBI officials who will tell them they can avoid new legislation by voluntarily building new surveillance capabilities into their products.

If they can shut down bank accounts for folks who have not even been charged with a crime, any thinking person can see where this is all leading.
