Wired has an interesting article that caught my eye today. The topic of interest is the FBI lobbying for things such as Skype and Xbox Live to be wire-tap friendly. Part of me is opposed to this but another part is indifferent since wiretapping has been going on for a good long while. Still, if the law doesn't cover internet means of communications then it may be an uphill battle for the FBI in order to get this passed. There may not be enough proof that any planning of the malicious kind occurred over Xbox live or even Skype but to have these backdoors forced on everyone's computers, phones, and entertainment equipment seems a bit much to me.
