ACLU Joins AT&T, Google And Privacy Groups To Urge Updates To Privacy Law
Mar 30, 2010 // ACLU

The American Civil Liberties Union today joined with a broad coalition to urge Congress to make much-needed changes to the laws that protect the privacy of electronic information. Congress passed the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) in 1986 - before the Web was invented - and it has not been properly updated to reflect the vast changes in technology since then. The coalition, named Digital Due Process, joins together the ACLU, AT&T, Google, Microsoft, the Center for Democracy and Technology, Electronic Frontier Foundation and other privacy groups.
