Description

The Electronic Frontier Foundation went to Washington to reverse-engineer government, hack politics down to its component parts, and fix it. Then it helped pass the FBI's "let's-just-wiretap-everyone" Digital Telephony Bill. As the country's phone system changes from analog to digital, the wiretapping capabilities of law-enforcement agencies are being eroded. According to the FBI, telecommunications carriers should be required to somehow adapt their new equipment so that wiretapping can continue. (February 1996)
