The Email Privacy Act (HR 387) would extend privacy protections to all electronic content, fixing a legacy flaw in our law that give little protection to emails over 6 months old.
“The bi-partisan Email Privacy Act (HR 387) brings common-sense legal privacy protections to all our electronic content. Today, our privacy in electronic communication is protected by a 30-year-old law that is decades out of date. The Act brings the 30-year-old ECPA law into the 21st Century,” said NetChoice Senior Policy Counsel Carl Szabo.
“We look forward to working with Congress in advancing this bill to benefit all Americans.”
