The surveillance society has arrived

The Guardian has an interview with Stewart Room, an information lawyer, law lecturer and the chair of National Association of Data Protection Officers (Nadpo):

"We're not talking about sleepwalking into a surveillance society anymore," he says. "The surveillance society has arrived. And the laws in place are not sufficient to protect us against the state and against the private sector, and against all those who will want to use our personal information."
