Did the Queen Just Resurrect the Snooper's Charter?

DavidGilbert99 (2607235) writes "This time last year the Queen officially introduced the Communications Data Bill (known as the Snooper's Charter to those opposing it). Last month it was effectively killed when the UK deputy prime minister Nick Clegg said it went too far and he wouldn't support it. Today the Queen was back and while there was no official mention of the Communications Data Bill, there was mention of "crime in cyberspace" and a very strong hint that more legislation to monitor people's online activity is on the way."

Lots of IP addresses (1)

One possible solution would be to completely change the system of attributing IP addresses, whereby every user online would have a specific IP address tied to each devices they used.

The queen demands more IP addresses!

Perhaps we've just found the way to get BT to support IPv6?
