Janet Reno would curb press freedom on line
Constitutional protections of the press are getting in the way of cyber-crime
prosecutions and may have to be reconsidered, a White House committee chaired by
US Attorney General Janet Reno believes.
"With the advent of the Internet and widespread computer use, almost any computer
can be used to 'publish' material. As a result, the [Privacy Protection Act of 1980
(PPA)] may now apply to almost any search of any computer," the committee's report
The committee's report, "The Electronic Frontier: The Challenge of Unlawful Conduct
Involving the Use of the Internet" is due to be released in final form this week.
