Ontario Provincial Police Recommend Ending Anonymity on the Internet

(MG): http://www.michaelgeist.ca/2014/11/ontario-provincial-police-recommend-ending-anonymity-internet/

    "Leaving aside the deeply troubling inference of requiring licences to
     the use the Internet in the same manner as obtaining a driver's
     licence, the police desire to stop online anonymity suggests that the
     OPP has not read the Supreme Court of Canada Spencer decision very
     carefully. If it had, it would know that not only does the court
     endorse a reasonable expectation of privacy in subscriber information,
     but it emphasizes the importance of online anonymity in doing so."
