As a complement to the November 26th library tech blog posting titled Tweaked Senate Bill Would Allow Government To Read E0Mails Without Warrant– here is essentially an update!

In essence, a new bill, which will go before congress in the next year, focuses on Internet privacy and would require law enforcement officers to obtain a warrant from a judge before they could access someone’s personal emails. So this bill is just the opposite of the dropped bill and would do much more to protect the right of individuals to keep the contents of their personal e-mail correspondence private.

The New York Times offers an article on this new bill titled Panel Approves a Bill to Safeguard E-Mail (Written by Savage, C. 11-29-12)

Here’s the link to the article:

Have a great evening!
