OAI Joins Digital Due Process Coalition: No Email, Cloud or Location Searches Without Warrants!

Last Updated:
Ever since Governor Gary Johnson headlined the 2014 Stop Watching Us rally to strengthen the Freedom Act's reforms to the privacy-destroying Patriot Act, Our America Initiative had continued to demand warrants as the 4th Amendment commands for government snooping and surveillance.  Now OAI has joined the Digital Due Process Coalition, led by the Center for Democracy and Technology, to require warrants before any government agency can spy on stored emails, Cloud documents or device location monitors. We urge emails to Congress to use the Electronic Communications Privacy Act reauthorization to finally restore the warrant requirement - to protect privacy so important especially for controversial creative endeavors, civil activism against majority thinking, and entrepreneurship to break up established corporate dominance.
