Details here if anyone hasn't heard of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft_Communications_Data_Bill It was recently passed into law by UK parliament. My main thoughts: IP addresses aren't people. If I sit outside your house and hack your wifi, I can go visit whatever sites I like and this could later be used in court against you, as far as I can tell. As it stores domains rather than full history, it's very easy to circumvent anyway. I could just visit the Google cached version of pages I'm worried about, or use a VPN. I'm worried at the lack of public oversight around access to this data. It'll surely be a matter of weeks after ISPs start collecting this data before one of them is hacked and a loads of people's internet history is uploaded online.
