Re: The law is fine and doesn't need changing

Yes, but this isn't just people lobbying. If you were an infosec company, wouldn't it be nice to be able to cold call and say "hey, you've got a problem you need someone to fix... FYI we fix this stuff..."

Thats where this is coming from. Also, another avenue for giving the plod a pass on creepy powers, while dressing it up as security, so home sec will love the idea of reform.
