Is Privacy a Thing of the Past?
How Technology has Outpaced the Law on Government Access to Electronic Communications
Can the government read through your private email without you knowing it? Can law enforcement track you wherever you and your cell phone go without any reason to suspect you of wrongdoing? What standards should apply before the government should have access to such personal information?
Please join The Constitution Project for an examination of the current debate surrounding efforts to reform the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), the law that regulates government access to electronic communications. This panel discussion will provide a variety of perspectives on the issues before this Congress as it considers legislation designed to bring ECPA into the 21st century.
*Lunch will be served*
