Privacy: ALA, ARL Applaud U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Endorsement of Privacy Reform Bill
We agree with ALA and ARL, very good news.
From Brandon Butler at ARL:
On Thursday, April 25, the US Senate Judiciary Committee took another crucial step toward fixing outdated privacy laws by endorsing a bill proposed by Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) that includes vital reforms to give appropriate privacy protection to e-mail and cloud storage.
The Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2013 (S. 607) proposed by Chairman Leahy (D-VT) will reform this outdated privacy law by providing suitable privacy protections to both email and cloud storage.
