Five Country Study Finds Diminished Protection for Anonymity

A new study by leading scholars from the USA, Canada, UK, Netherlands and Italy has revealed that laws are reinforcing technology's ability to undermine the anonymity of citizens. The law reveals a preference for legislation requiring people to submit to identification and an increasing encroachment of rules into areas where there were previously no regulations prohibiting anonymity. EPIC was a partner in the project. Consider purchasing the Lessons from the Identity Trail. For more information, see EPIC's page on Free Speech and Internet Anonymity.
