Digital Due Process

Thursday, May 6th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

As an internet user, I think it is important to be aware of your rights, or the lack thereof when you’re surfing the internet. In 1986 the EPCA (The Electronic Communications Privacy Act) was passed and it was a great forward looking step in the right direction; but now that technology has leaped light years ahead and continues to progress at such a high speed, it is outdated.

In the main section, About the Issue you will learn all about how communication has changed since the act passed. People are using e-mail, mobile phones, social networking, and cloud commuting more than ever before. Each brings with it privacy issues and security issues. You’ll find them outlined for you on the main page, just scroll down. Just below that you’ll find out why the EPCA needs updating specifically because of: unclear and inconsistent rulings, but you’ll also discover what they would like to achieve by reforming it.

Our Principles is a section that goes even further into what they believe the government should be allowed to access and under what circumstances.

Who We Are – this section shows you who has joined the coalition to get the EPCA reformed. I was really happy to find many leaders of the industry listed as a part of this coalition. It is important to me to see that they are out there breaking ground on this issue rather than sitting back on their laurels and waiting for their consumers to do it.

News – this section will keep you up to date with the latest news on the issue.

Check this site out today, it will take maybe ten minutes of your day, but you’ll leave better informed than when you got there.
