Apple joins the DDP

Binary Apple is throwing its weight into the Digital Due Process coalition. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company announced it joined the group calling for modernization of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act. Other members include Amazon, AT&T, Google, Intel and Microsoft.

The ECPA was enacted in 1986 and is little changed in the years since. Privacy advocates argue that because the ECPA does not address such issues as cloud computing, social networks and other current technologies, police agencies have been able to gather data users reasonably expected to remain private.

Apple and the other members of the DDP are calling for Congress to amend the ECPA to add safeguards for individual and corporate data in today's technology environment.
