I think it's good publicity, rather than bad publicity for them. Courage to go ahead with the report, and by publishing openly it also shows that all the other major global and national telcos will be doing exactly the same thing (and are now all scrabbling about with crisis meetings and having to put together their own report)

Well Vodafone clearly aren't going for the niche criminal market, they are losing out on some profit there.

While we're at it maybe we should also discuss the poor syntax of the article which gets passed off as journalism.

That aside, I do think they (Vodafone) should have revealed which six countries have laws in which the government has direct access to people's conversations.

Sad, disappointing, hardly unexpected thou.

Typical media sensationalising what has been happening since the telephone was invented.

Legal interception has always occurred in NZ. There is absolutely nothing new or newsworthy about this story.

Maybe Stuff can run a story tomorrow about the Sky being blue..

That wouldn't really be any dumber than most of their oh-it's-another-slow-news-day stories.

I just went outside to check the accuracy of this claim, all I saw were stars, no blue anywhere. Either someone's stolen the sky or you're just making this stuff up!
