Public meeting at UCL on government plans to spy on internet users

Over the summer the Home Office is holding two public consultations on

government powers to spy on Internet usage and demand passwords from

computer users. A free public meeting at University College London is

being held on 14 August to hear a range of views on these powers, from

government officials and peers to computer security and human rights

experts. The meeting will also hear about problems in the way that

computer evidence has been used to obtain convictions. Attendees will

get a detailed insight into this obscure area of British law that will

have a huge impact on privacy and human rights in the information age.
