    The law should protect your online communications
    Was chatting with an affiliate who got this and an hour later I get it:

    Charles, here's the difference between your legal right to privacy online and your legal right to privacy offline:

    If the government wants to obtain a document stored in your home file cabinet, the law requires a warrant signed by a judge. The warrant needs to show that there's probable cause that such an intrusion of your privacy will expose proof of illegal activity.

    Under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, however, some government agencies argue that they don't need a warrant to access your online data. They simply send a subpoena -- which doesn't require a judge's signature or the same burden of proof -- to the Internet service.

    Sign the "We the People" petition to let the White House know that the law should protect the privacy of your electronic communications.

    Petition the White House to protect online privacy

    To be clear, Google requires a search warrant before releasing any data relating to contents of Gmail or other Google services.

    That said, the number of requests from law enforcement to Google are growing -- in the first half of this year, Google received 10,918 requests for information about our users from government investigators in the US. That's an increase of 205% since 2009.

    It's time for the Electronic Communications Privacy Act to protect our privacy in more than name only -- a warrant should always be required when the government wants to read your email or any other form of online communication.

    Do you agree? Sign the White House petition now:

    http://takeaction.withgoogle.com/white-house-petition

    More soon,

    Derek Slater
    Google Inc.
    And this at the bottom:
    2013 Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043
    You are receiving this email because you asked to receive updates on Internet legislation and initiatives from Google. To opt out of future communications, please click here.
    mailed-by: bounce.bluestatedigital.com

    Petition goes to: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...t-get-warrant/

    What the hell kind of handy crap is this. Bogus propaganda from pseudo-Google spam that's actually from the White House?

    Actually from the Google - It is working with Blue State Digital.

    Petitions on whitehouse.gov are legit (actually anyone can file a petition) - if x amount of digital signatures are obtained then the White House HAS to respond...

    Convergence, you are the second person who use the word "interwebs" other than Richard Rawlings from Gas Monkey Garage.

    I always get a kick out of it when he says that.



    Sorry,

    Didn't it come from Homer Simpson? The agency I last worked for used that as a joke.
