UK police asks Internet cafes to monitor customers
London: Internet cafe users in the British
capital may want to watch what they download.
Scotland Yard is advising administrators of public Web
spaces to periodically poke through their customers` files.
The London-based police force says it`s more of an
awareness drive than a surveillance campaign _ but civil

Privacy activist Simon Davies says people should not have
their Web use monitored at Internet cafes any more than public
pay phones users should have their calls listened in on.

plotters have used Internet cafes to coordinate planned
Posters and screen savers with the Scotland Yard logo are
also being installed at cafes that sign up to the plan.
