Interesting development concerning the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, again following on from one of Jack’s twitters 🙂

Big companies such as Microsoft and AT&T and advocacy groups from different parts of the political spectrum have joined forces in the newly formed Digital Due Process coalition intent on strengthening online privacy and to lobby the government on this. Other members include the left-leaning Electronic Frontier Foundation and American Civil Liberties Union as well as the libertarian Progress and Freedom Foundation and Competitive Enterprise Institute.
