Apple criticises UK's proposed spying law, British media say

Technology company Apple criticised draft British legislation designed to stiffen surveillance powers on Monday, saying the proposed bill could “spark serious international conflicts”, British media reported. Home Secretary Theresa May said November’s Investigatory Powers Bill would make existing surveillance laws more transparent and update them to take into account the growth of online communications. “It would also likely be the catalyst for other countries to enact similar laws,” Apple said in a document sent to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the new legislation, British media reported.
