i think that info exchange works both ways. it would be nice to hear
from the gardai and/or the dpp what evidence they need in these cases.
and also, what are you legally *allowed* to record.
while i love your story and i'm glad they got the guy, are your internet
cafe customers aware that you might record their internet traffic?
is there a sighn stating as much, or a form that they sign? are you
legally obligated to do such notification? i know that i am usually
told at the beginning of a call to certain companies that my call may be
recorded. and how does the eu data protection act fit into all of this?
the net has been largely self-policing for decades. and i hope it
continues that way. but i think that in order for it to maintain that
model, the communication between technical experts and the legal community
(prosecutors and police) is not "a bit out there," it is a requirement.
