Rave wrote:When you say 'Digital surveillance of all citizens, not even suspected of a crime' should be forbidden, you don't mean that if they have been suspected of a crime it's not ok for them to be under surveillance, do you? Does this cover camera suvellance of public areas like main streets or parks (to detect crimes, like in dangerous areas at night), or shops to deter/detect shoplifters? I think those are valid forms of suveillance - as long as they are not targeted at a single person.
Apart from that I agree. The Australian an UK PP's are including use of FOSS in public funded sectors as an issue in our manifesto. What does everyone think of PPI including this issue too?

- non-commercial filesharing should be legalized.
- DRM to be abolished.
- Patents should be reworked, i.e. clean slate in order to provide a system that is fair and doesn't allow for thousands to die daily, in order to protect investments.
- Digital surveillance of all citizens, not even suspected of a crime, should be forbidden.

Rafe wrote:Okay, so to clarify the surveillance issue, could this be our policy:
To prohibit law enforcement agencies from monitoring specific people, or tapping any private communication, without a warrant. To forbid such surveillance by other agencies, governmental or not. (This includes spyware, which should be punished.) To forbid subpoenaing ISPs and telecoms for their customers' usage data in civil cases.
