Implantable Medical Device Tells All: Uberveillance Gets to the Heart of the Matter

Journal Article


Abstract


  • I provided evidence at an Australian inquiry into the use of subsection 313(3) of the Telecommunications Act of 1997 by government agencies to disrupt the operation of illegal online services [1]. I stated to the Standing Committee on Infrastructure and Communications that mandatory metadata retention laws meant blanket coverage surveillance for Australians and visitors to Australia. The intent behind asking Australian service providers to keep subscriber search history data for up to two years was to grant government and law enforcement organizations the ability to search Internet Protocol-based records in the event of suspected criminal activity.
