Americans are deeply concerned about NSA surveillance.
But the NSA’s not the only problem. An outdated law says the IRS and hundreds of other agencies can read our communications without a warrant.
That law, known as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), was written over 25 years ago, before the services we use today even existed.
Right now, several bills in Congress would fix this by updating ECPA to require a warrant, but regulatory bodies are blocking reform in order to gain new powers of warrantless access. So, we started a White House petition calling on the Obama Administration to support ECPA reform, and to reject any special rules that would force online service providers to disclose our email without a warrant.
Help us reach 100,000 signatures by December 12 so the Obama Administration is forced to reply — and hopefully endorse reforming this outdated law that ignores Americans' right to privacy.
