In remarks at the University of Chicago Law School yesterday, President Obama named privacy as one of the constitutional issues that will be increasingly salient in the years to come. "In a society in which so much of your life is digitized, people have a whole new set of privacy expectations that are understandable,” said the President. Obama said the encryption debate was “just the tip of the iceberg of what we’re going to have to figure out.” In its brief in Apple v. FBI, EPIC recently argued that cell phone encryption was adopted to protect consumers from crime. EPIC routinely files amicus briefs in cases that raise novel privacy and civil liberties issues.
