EPIC Supports International Principles for Privacy Protection

EPIC has joined with leading human rights organizations and privacy experts in support of the "International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance." The Principles were adopted in response to growing concern about the surveillance of Internet communications by governments and private companies. Among the key principles in the framework document are Necessity, Adequacy, Proportionality, Competent Judicial Authority, Due Process, User Notification, Transparency, Public Oversight, and Safeguards Against Illegitimate Access.
