Privacy Law

If the Police wish to obtain the personal information of an individual who is registered with a company, the police need to produce an individual warrant to gain access to the information the compnay holds. In the case of the civil upset last year, rioters used the encrypted Blackberry Messenger Service to organise themselves meaning police forces will have to produce warrents for RIM. Producing warrants for every suspected rioter is hugely impractical, so should the police have to go through so much red tape just to do their job? Or should electronic personal privacy be upheld by law?
