Comment Re:Will a warrant be required? (Score 1) 188

According to the article, "Installation of the software wiretap is to be carried out on the instructions of a judge only." so I imagine authorities will have to go through the normal due process. From what it sounds like this is a means to tap VOIP conversations much in the same way telephones have been bugged in the past. This is merely coming up to pace with today's technology.

Now if this were applied in the US and could be installed without a judge's consent (a la the Patriot Act), your standard privacy concerns would apply, but the impression I get is that this is a case of the Swiss authorities catching up with today's technology.

Time is an illusion perpetrated by the manufacturers of space.
