Mar 30, 2010 // The New York Times

Digital Due Process, a coalition of technology companies and advocacy groups announced that it will be lobbying Congress for updates to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986. The group hopes to see the privacy regulations become more in line with today's technological landscape. The New York Times reported:

 

"The coalition, which includes the American Civil Liberties Union, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Center for Democracy and Technology, wants law enforcement agencies to use a search warrant approved by a judge or a magistrate rather than rely on a simple subpoena from a prosecutor to obtain a citizen's online data."
