Today the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to pass a bill that will update the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). ECPA last updated in 1986, does not adequately address the digital world. 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Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act of 2013 ( S. 607) proposed by Chairman Leahy (D-VT) will reform this outdated privacy law by providing suitable privacy protections to both email and cloud storage.
That ALA will continue to work with Digital Due Process to move this issue forward!
