The Electronic Frontiers Foundation (EFF) is making hay about internet legislation HR 1981 – a bill that adds a money laundering crime to the books. They are claiming that this bill “Orders Internet Companies to Spy On You.” https://secure.eff.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=497 Well I don’t know who is running the EFF these days, but this is bunk. This is the relevant clause from the proposed legislation (which the EFF does not bother to link to). `(h) Retention of Certain Records- A provider of an electronic communication service or remote computing service shall retain for a period of at least 18 months the temporarily assigned network addresses the service assigns to each account, unless that address is transmitted by radio communication (as defined in section 3 of the Communications Act of 1934).’. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:H.R.1981: I’ve run an ISP for 16 years and so have some insight as to what this means.

Term contracts are a part of the telecom landscape. There’s no way to avoid them, really – it’s very capital-intensive to install and turn up new telecommunications services, so companies like FORETHOUGHT.net require a minimum term in order to make sure we can get that investment back, and make a profit. When our contracts expire, they go month-to-month. But there are still telecom companies out there that have contract clauses that automatically renew your service agreement for a year or even for the original term, possibly up to three years, unless you cancel within a narrow time window. These clauses are known as “auto-renewal” clauses, though I’ve heard of them as “greenfield” clauses too. These terms are purely for the carrier’s benefit, and what they do is put incredible time pressure on you, the customer, to quickly make a decision. Many of these auto-renew clauses only give you a 30-day… read more →
