Surveillance Industry & Country's Actings

BuggedPlanet.Info is a small Wiki that tries to list and track down the activities of the surveillance industry in the fields of "Lawful Interception", Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Communications Intelligence (COMINT) and related fields to gain access to data from telecommunication systems. In this talk I want to explain the idea behind the project and also discuss some observations made between industrial activites and governmental actings.

Especially the production/marketing of the products to governments operating in countries without any democratic tradition and the marketing activities to "widen" the market for these products does have the ability to change also the way the governments within democratic frameworks operate. I will give examples of this "cross-market" activities and the implications.
