The “Black Box” project proposed by the French government goes, by some aspects, further than what was reproached to the US with the Patriot Act. This measure allowing the tapping, at any moment, of all the traffic of a hosting provider or an Internet service provider in the purpose of looking for potential terrorists seems relatively vain, very poorly targeted and economically counter-productive.
All this, beyond being useless in terms of results, seems to be a very bad direction to move in, regarding the confidentiality to which no one will ever be entitled to again, as well as for the fact that it will kill a part of French economy, one of the only ones still growing.
That is why we ask the French government to reconsider."
