Police: Internet Providers Must Keep User Logs

I supposed we shouldn't be too surprised by this news. Seriously, we are talking about law enforcement here, of course they are going to want ISPs to store user logs.

Law enforcement representatives are planning to endorse a proposed federal law that would require Internet service providers to store logs about their customers for 18 months, CNET has learned. The National Sheriffs' Association will say it "strongly supports" mandatory data retention during Tuesday's U.S. House of Representatives hearing on the topic.
