EPIC Urges Congress to Reform ECPA, Safeguard Locational Data

EPIC has filed a statement for the record in a hearing on the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, (ECPA) "ECPA Reform and the Revolution in Location Based Technologies and Services" before the House Committee on the Judiciary. EPIC recommends that Congress consider the need to protect locational data for users of new communications services.  The statement calls attention to several recent developments, including Apple's iOS 4.  EPIC had previously recommended that the FCC establish guidelines for the protection of users' locational privacy. For more information, see EPIC: CPNI.
