BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, “Company”) (OTC Pink: VPLM) announces that its patented Lawful Intercept Technology (U.S. Patent No. 8,422,507) could solve the major challenges associated with the current U.S. Government’s NSA surveillance program. In recent months, it has come to light that the NSA has been accumulating all forms of data and communications in a very broad surveillance program, causing major concerns regarding potential violations of privacy. Since the attacks on American soil of September 11, 2001, the threat of global terrorism has prompted the need for increased surveillance in order to intercept and thwart potential terror plots. As a result, Voip-Pal believes the United States Government has had no other option but to have the NSA launch a broad and blanketed approach to surveillance by collecting personal data and communications from all citizens, resulting in much concern from privacy advocates and greater distrust in the government among its citizens. Now with the provision of Lawful Intercept through Voip-Pal, the Company feels that it has provided a better alternative which creates a method of more strategically targeted surveillance without the need to monitor communications from the public at large, keeping peoples’ privacy intact.
Lawful Intercept technology will provide the U.S. and other world governments a much more effective and totally stealth method of legally intercepting all forms of VoIP communications including SKYPE, Vonage, Magic Jack, as well as VoIP to landline calls. Until the USPTO’s approval of Voip-Pal’s Lawful Intercept patent earlier this year, there was not an effective means of stealthily intercepting communications from specific pinpointed suspects, resulting instead in the current blanket approach of gathering information from the population at large. Lawful Intercept will allow for government agencies to pinpoint their surveillance to specific criminal and terrorist suspects only, without the need for the widespread collection of data. Lawful Intercept is a real time means of intercepting communications that is designed to be an invaluable tool in providing for national security and assisting law enforcement agencies to prevent terrible tragedies like the Boston Marathon bombing and Mumbai Massacre.
