~ next legislative hurdle: cell phone records ~

It seems that everytime EPIC concocts a medicinal potion to treat threats to privacy there is a legislator standing by to ensure that it is broadly disseminated. The current danger: online sales of cell phone call logs. Charles Schumer is taking the EPIC proposal and turning it into legislation.

There are many types of records that should not be sold over the Internet to anyone who can pay a fee. The unwise course of action would be for Congress to bar legitimate uses of cell phone records for legal investigations. The Senate is attempting to keep a cell phone directory out of the public domain too.
