Making universities pay for FBI surveillance, thank you very much FCC

[In principle, I think I'm with Dan on this one. In reality, though, I 
wonder if making universities liable for paying for their own compliance 
will increase opposition to this FCC mandate (including lawsuits 
challenging it) and reduce the chance of some IT person saying "Oh, yes, 
it'll cost us $100 million to comply. Check, please!" Also, let's 
remember that this may be an unwarranted expansion of CALEA that may be 
illegal unless Congress ratifies it. --Declan]

Declan,

I just blogged about a story that might of interest to your readers on my
new blog, Concurring Opinions, http://www.concurringopinions.com, where I 
blog about information privacy law issues.

The story involves the expansion of the CALEA to require universities,
libraries, and others to build in technologies to their telecommunication
services that will facilitate law enforcement surveillance.

The cost is staggering, and I argue in my blog post that the cost should not
be borne by the universities:
