Hawaii may keep track of all Web sites visited

CNET News is reporting that Hawaii's legislature is considering a proposal to require Internet Service Providers to record every web site their customers visit. The measure, H.B. 2288, says "Internet destination history information" and "subscriber's information" such as name and address must be saved for two years.

The required data is "subscribers information and internet destination history information".  That information includes IP address, domain name, or host name.

The effect of this proposal would be for the government to know every website its citizens look at.  The refrain from a Police song pops into my mind, "every breath you take, every step you take, I'll be watching you".
