Gonzales Wants ISP Data Retention To Curb Child Porn

The AP is reporting that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified before the Senate Banking Committee today and called for Congress to require ISPs to preserve customer records, asserting that prosecutors need them to fight child pornography.

‘This is a problem that requires federal legislation,’ Gonzales said. He called the government’s lack of access to customer data the biggest obstacle to deterring child porn. ‘We respect civil liberties but we have to harmonize this so we can get more information,’ he said.”

Gonzales added that he agrees with a letter sent to Congress in June by 49 state attorneys general, requesting federal legislation to require ISPs to hold onto customer data longer.
