FBI seeks access to private email information
06 Aug 2010

The US government has introduced new legislation which would allow the FBI to demand personal information from private email accounts. The bill would enable FBI field officers to access information regarding the times and dates emails were sent, as well as the private email addresses of correspondents. The FBI would not need to possess a court order and would simply need to deem the information relevant to demand private details from internet┬áproviders. ISP’s would be forced to keep the requests secret.
