Not sure whos viewpoint this is, it reads like its the FBI's:

"The problem the FBI faces is that it cannot identify and break down information
that travels as packets of data over the Internet. Phone calls placed over the
Internet are changed from voice signals into data packets that look much like
other data packets that contain e-mail or instructions for browsing the
Internet"

Erm no, phone calls on the internet use the same data structure as they do on
the phone network, the difference is in the transport. Kinda worrying they want
to pass a law but dont know why they want it.
