CNET: UK digital surveillance laws ruled unlawful

CNET: UK digital surveillance laws ruled unlawful. “Appeal court judges confirmed on Tuesday that the foundations of Britain’s mass digital surveillance programme give police and intelligence agencies too much leeway to access confidential information. According to the ruling, the current system doesn’t do enough to limit snooping to those involved in serious crime, or require police to seek the thumbs-up from independent authorities before they delve into our data.”
