Senate Judiciary Passes Electronic Privacy Update
Would protect info stored in the cloud
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 11/29/2012 11:57:39 AM
The legislation, introduced by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), updates the ECPA, passed 25 years ago, to require law enforcement to get a search warrant to access emails, social network posts and other info stored in the cloud.
"We are very happy that the committee voted that all electronic content like emails, photos and other communications held by companies like Google and Facebook should be protected with a search warrant," said ACLU legislative counsel Chris Calabrese. "We believe law enforcement should use the same standard to search your inbox that they do to search your home."
