ISPs to Save Web Surfing Information?

The Justice Department is asking Internet providers to save detailed records of where people go on the Internet for at most two years. They are not looking at keeping the content, e.g., attachments or web sites that were found, but the data related to the search or message. Currently, this type of information is kept for 180 days if an investigation is underway. Before this change would take effect, Congress would have to authorize it. [from Mercury News.com]
