E-snooping bill becomes law

The controversial regulation and investigatory powers bill, dubbed the “e-snooping bill”, has been passed into UK law.

LONDON (Brand Republic) - The controversial regulation and investigatory powers bill, dubbed the “e-snooping bill”, has been passed into UK law.

The RIP bill gives the government the power to intercept email and demand access to encryption keys. It was approved in the House of Commons yesterday (July 26) following months of debate and numerous amendments in the House of Lords.

Some internet service providers have threatened to leave the UK if the bill was passed because of the extra costs involved with intercepting email.
