[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Of course they can, and of course they will. Big Brother comes just a few steps closer. And, in some countries in Europe, 'Secondary Inspections' have already gotten underway if some recent internet p*rn is to be believed. You know, the old 'secret hidden camera' routine and all that.
