Clampdown in the US?

The FAA proposed changes to the program that blocks certain public access to real-time flight tracking by allowing it only for operators with a "Valid Security Concern," and NBAA immediately opposed the plan.
The FAA's proposal notes that "the Privacy Act does not protect general aviation operators" from public access to their flight information. NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen said Friday that the move, which would release more flight information to the public, represents "an unwarranted invasion of the privacy of aircraft owners and operators, a threat to the competitiveness of U.S. companies and a potential security risk to persons on board." The FAA's proposed changes would still allow operators to participate in BARR (a program that blocks aircraft registration requests) if certain conditions are met.
To have their information blocked, operators must show provide a written request that shows a "Valid Security Concern," as defined by the FAA. The FAA would then provide written approval valid for one year. The FAA has defined a "Valid Security Concern" as "a verifiable threat to person, property or company, including a threat of death, kidnapping or serious bodily harm against an individual, a recent history of violent terrorist activity in the geographic area in which the transportation is provided, or a threat against a company." NBAA sees no reason why the government should provide "the tools to electronically stalk U.S. citizens or companies on general aviation airplanes" to unknown individuals with unknown interests.

This isn't to do with ADS-B so don't worry. This is ASDi data which they are talking about.

I thought so. On second reading it also seems like a relaxation - not a further restriction.

I understand that Airnav are a registered subscriber to ASDi, so will this change affect what appears on the Airnav network?

The ADSI data is data from the FAA and has nothing to do with data being shown on the RadarBox network, so there is no affect.

Also the above also applies to real time ADSI data.

fullstop,  I presume that was on RB24 as it will not affect a Radarbox?

You are correct.
