Congress Tries To Hide Massive Data Retention Law By Pretending It’s An Anti-Child Porn Law | Techdirt.

The bill actually has very little to do with stopping child pornographers, but a lot to do with requiring online service providers to retain certain information (mainly IP addresses) on users for 18 months.
