Main Article Content
This article analyzes the extent that digital privacy acts are adequately protected by existing law. The authors look at the historical protection of these rights, and note that the last major piece of legislation in the area was 1986. An analysis of the changes in society from 1986 to the present indicates that changes to current law are long overdue. The authors review some recommended changes and call for Congress to act to update American laws related to electronic communication.
