This comes only days after Australia passed legislation that gives police and government the power to compel companies to gather data for them, including bypassing encryption.

Government shutdowns don't typically last long. Currently, the government has no formal legislation in the works to match what Australia has done, but the Justice Department is committed to seeking these powers. Without serious opposition and lobbying, they will eventually have them. And while they wait they can just use Australia's new law.

I don't know that what India is doing is particularly worrying from a global standpoint---they've been Orwellian for some time now and aren't a major power--but it's concerning to yet another nation increase police powers at the expense of privacy and freedom, especially so soon. I had hoped that the rollout of new legislation would take months or years, and that each incarnation would face serious opposition.

at least America isn't as in your face when gathering data on their citizens, but they still do it. other countries with more socialism and communism behind them are going to want to spy more on their people and keep them afraid of the government, well those countries that can log on of course. welcome to the new world order of the digital era, if we don't force the government to stop over reaching they are going to continue. the lies of just because you're not doing anything wrong you have anything to hide, is entirely not true. this isn't 1984 we are entitled to privacy in our homes and elsewhere.
