NPR: How Private is Your Email?

http://j.mp/swWUFb  (NPR)

    "So Google insists on a warrant anyway - a warrant signed by a judge -
     on the theory that emails enjoy a higher, constitutional protection.
     Two federal appeals courts in different parts of the country have
     echoed this argument and most law enforcement agencies now do tend to
     get warrants, now. But tech companies say that doesn't resolve the
     bigger problem - that federal Internet privacy law, which is 25 years
     old; they say it's out of date."

It is critical that cloud-stored email be clearly given at least the
same level of legal protection, regardless of how long it is stored
there, as email stored on users' local computers.
