Hi,

recently we discussed the plans of the European Council to ban hacking tools
and to introduce an overall tightened surveillance of ISPs and their customers
in cooperation with the members of the european union.

The EC now has dropped their plans according the ban of these tools after
strong objections from the industry and a whole lot of angry sysadmins
(including myself).

However, there are more doubtful paragraphs in this draft convention which
still is more or less inacceptable for most of us.

The original draft version of the European Council's cyber crime convention can
be found here: conventions.coe.int/treaty/en/projets/cybercrime.htm

The EC-draft update can be read here: www.theregister.co.uk/content/1/15206.html
