FBI Could Force Internet Companies to Make Their Sites Surveillance-Friendly

Cnet says that the FBI is attempting to strong arm companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft into making their websites and services "wiretap friendly".
CISPA and SOPA don't look so bad after all if this comes to fruition. Cnet says that if permitted, the proposal would be ammeded to the legislature which requires telecommunications to make their communication lines accessible for wiretaps.
"If you create a service, product, or app that allows a user to communicate, you get the privilege of adding that extra coding," a person who has reviewed the FBI's draft legislation told CNET. The requirements apply only if a threshold of a certain number of users is exceeded, according to a second person briefed on it.
Not only are the FBI on this, but so is the FCC, making a push to make voice or video chat service on the internet fall under the purview of this. [Cnet]
