Subj: "BigBrother" is ISP Self Preservation Measure?

It just occurred to me... With shared liability for
psychocriminal behavior being forced upon ISPs (for such
things as allowing predators to use a service or hosting a
hate/porn site), it's possible that the big brother tactic
spelled out in the contract merely represents a pre-emptive
strike to head off any possible liability in future law
suits.

hmmmm..... Could it be a lawyer was involved?

That's gutsy of the ISP to put it in their contract like
that:  "We're a government spy and you're being watched
24/7 whether you like it or not."

How long will it be when it's required of all ISPs to do
this?

WARNING:  Absolute Power Currupts Absolutely!
