Acxiom Proposed Massive Web Monitoring Plan
Documents ( http://epic.org/priv...iominternet.pdf ) obtained by EPIC under the Freedom of Information Act show that commercial data broker Acxiom proposed a system to automatically scan the Internet and identify websites "belonging to advocates of extremist views and actions..." The plan proposed to extract personal information from websites and use it for "cross-reference analysis to establish possible connections between extremist groups" and to collect data for an "Identity Verification System to be used by airlines, rental car agencies, and other business and government agencies." For more information, see EPIC's Commercial Data Broker page ( http://epic.org/priv...nt/default.html ). (Feb. 2)
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
