In a recent talk at the American Bar Association, the FBI has outlined its desire for new monitoring powers in the online world.
Addressing the audience in Washington, the FBI's general counsel Andrew Weissmann discussed the need to address the problem of "going dark": which is essentially the ability to communicate online without being monitored.
1994 surveillance laws allow government authorities to monitor phone and internet activity, but not email, cloud or chat services such as Skype.
The FBI wants to address these blind spots and even begin monitoring "the chat feature in Scrabble".
While online poker isn't specifically mentioned, the desire to monitor chatbox activity in games such as Scrabble could lead to provisions being enforced at the virtual poker tables as well.

I have to agree with the post above here, they have that patriot act law and with that they can pretty much invade your private life saying it's for national safety...

The bad part is that more and more countries adopt the same law. I don't think that will be a problem as long it's legal to play online poker.
