Forbes.com: Net Makes Recording Calls A Snap

But now the increasingly widespread adoption of voice-over-IP technology (or Internet phone calling) could make the recording and archiving of phone calls much easier and more common. Since Internet-based phone calls already consist of packets of data, they're potentially much easier to copy and archive than traditional calls. Convenient recording of phone conversations could prove a boon for businesses that need to keep track of every bit of information. But it also poses significant moral questions and threatens to undermine personal privacy. "
