FCC ruled that VOIP providers must make their systems meet the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act(In a nutshell they must be able to tap the lines). Anyone know how that will effect our end of things? I haven't done a VOIP system yet but was just wondering if that would make existing VOIP systems obsolete. I also can't help but wonder how much is for security and how much they want to be able to "see" the traffic in order to tax it. One quote in the article " The ruling does not affect other regulatory questions surrounding VoIP service, such as how it should be taxed, FCC Chairman Michael Powell said." Notice he says HOW it should be taxed not whether it SHOULD be taxed.

rest assured, it will be taxed.
I'd bet the industry will put it back on them to find a way to tap without interference. If they want to tap, they will have to find the wizard that can build the tap system and the industry will have to give them access.
Thats my guess.
