Secrecy
What I don't understand is why, if these actions are necessary and noble, does it all need to be so secretive? If data gathering is an important part of police work and tracking people online can aid and abet the arrest of dangerous individuals, why does the cooperation between government and the private sector have to be conducted in private?

That suggests that it's not all above board, but by its very nature we cannot know.

Re: Secrecy
@Whoopty. It remains secretive because if it was more public it would definitely incur a greater degree of opposition. Whether this practice is detrimenta or notl thats not for me to decide. I agree with you that the secrecy of this endeavor makes things smell fishy. But what degree of transparency should be provided? I think thats the biggest question.

Re: Secrecy
Agree. If opposition grows that would be the norms they have to go with which nobody wants today. It is not consensus what they are looking for.

Re: Secrecy
If the secrecy is the target then transparency is not really the truth, they will provide transparency in the areas where they would want to mislead the public, not on the subject matter.

Re: Secrecy
I understand why something has to be done privately, what I do to understand is the fact that this can not be in masses. If it involves more than necessary that is overreaching personal privacy.

Separation of Powers
I agree with Yorgen. I think this act will endanger exposure from other country's businesses. As, depending on the nature of the business, it endangers their own citizens data. A partnership between the Private and Public sectors is dangerous as its fatal flaw lies in the number of bodies it represents. In direct opposition to another who has the higher authority? I believe many would argue government. This seems like an unfair partnership. If it yields results in terms of threat mitigation I'll hop on board but until concrete evidence is provided that this will be beneficial, I remain skeptical.

Re: Separation of Powers
I agree. Separation of powers already available if we do not touch Internet. We will be reading this very soon if we go with this speed.

No need a bill
As we did not need net neutrality bill we do not need this bill either, we have to let Internet work the way it is.
