Making the Business Case Against Mass Surveillance

Loz Kaye's picture

Once again the threat of blanket surveillance legislation is back thanks to the new government. One of their first acts was to announce the return of the Snoopers' Charter.

This is not just a threat to civil liberties, and a waste of resources that should be better channelled on actually protecting us. It is a threat to our economy too. Software companies announced they would be pulling out of the UK :

This is way more significant than whether Katie Hopkins or Paul O'Grady come and go. The signal is that we have a government that doesn't get tech, that would put investment in danger, and would directly interfere in digital business.
