AT&T : the new Death star 3.0

palewook writes "First, Frontline detailed AT&T's co-operation with the NSA's domestic data logging program in Spying On The Home Front. Now, AT&T has decided to work on implementing a deep data packet inspection program of their own. After all, the NSA already logs AT&T network data to keep you safe, why not deploy technology to keep you safe from pirated content on AT&T's network. AT&T claims they will not violate user privacy or FCC directives. James W. Cicconi, an AT&T senior vice president, started working last week with the MPAA and the RIAA to develop anti-piracy technology. The old AT&T death star logo joke appears relevant again."
