Law Enforcement Access To User Email Shouldn’t Depend On Time: Feds

Measurable reform to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act may be forthcoming following an acknowledgement by the Department of Justice yesterday. The acknowledgement, involving law enforcement access to user emails included the perspective that there is no reason to treat emails that are under 180 days old differently from emails that are over 180 days old.

The Department of Justice statement is in line with one made by an ARS Technica writer at the end of last year, which opined that the outdated rules aren’t consistent in any way with the workings of today’s email systems. But experts say that the wait for privacy-conscious reform as far as law enforcement access to email could be a long one, as the introduction of such legislation has been occurring for two years.
