NL: Kosten fuer Ueberwachung zahlen Kunden


-.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-.

Warum es wirklich Grund zu Optimismus gibt, belegen zwei
Artikel des jederzeit empfehlenswerten Industry Standard.
Zum einen kündigen holländische ISPs bereits an, für
Zwangsspeicherung von Daten und Installation von
Überwachungsequipment 20 Prozent auf ihre Rechnungen
aufschlagen zu müssen.

Zum anderen erklärt der zuständige EU Kommissar Vitorino,
man habe zu sehr auf die Hilfe "Law Enforcement" und
zuwenig auf jener der Communities bei der Bekämpfung von
Cyber-Crime gesetzt.

Dutch ISPs to Pass Along Cybercrime Costs

The service providers say that they need monitoring
equipment, and that they will hike the price of Web access in
the Netherlands by 20 to 25 percent.

By Joris Evers

AMSTERDAM – Possibly setting a European precedent,
Internet service providers in the Netherlands say costs for
Internet access will rise significantly because of cyber-crime
regulation.

The Dutch ISPs say they are forced to install expensive
network monitoring equipment. The cost for a medium-size
access provider will be around $600,000, and larger ISPs
would face higher expenses, said the association of Dutch
Internet service providers, the Vereniging van Nederlandse.

"As a result the cost of Internet access will rise 20 to 25
percent," said Hans Leemans, director of the NLIP. The
deadline for installing the equipment is April.

According to a 1998 telecom act, Dutch ISPs are required to
make their networks ready for surveillance by law
enforcement. A draft convention on cyber crime prepared by
the Council of Europe proposes similar legislation.

"If the convention is taken literally, then the potential
implications are enormous," said Joe McNamee, spokesman
for EuroISPA, the association of Internet service providers in
the European Union. Besides buying monitoring equipment,
ISPs would have to buy storage hardware. "That would make
it even more expensive," Leemans said.

Making the customer pay is only natural, McNamee said. "If
the government doesn't foot the bill, I don't know where else
the money would come from."
