UK Internet advocacy group Cyber-Rights & Cyber-Liberties UK has prepared a letter for Internet users to send to their ISPs. It protests at recent proposals by the Association of Chief Police Officers in association with UK ISPs to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that would allow law enforcement to access UK Internet users' personal data and communications. The letter, available at www.cyber-rights.org/privacy/letter.htm, claims that the MOU would "enable ISPs to be released, in certain circumstances, from the restrictions on disclosure of personal data imposed by the UK Data Protection laws." The letter urges ISPs not to participate in the MOU and to protect their users' confidentiality.
