Privacy Concerns for Maine Lawmakers + Civil Libertarians

I love social media. But for all of us it should come with some questions and concerns about threats to our privacy. The American Civil Liberties Union of Maine is making privacy protection a priority and supporting a number of bills this year and Maine Lawmakers are listening.

The bills would require law enforcement to get a warrant before using ‘domestic drones’ to spy on people and police would be required to get probable cause warrants before obtaining text messages or tracking people by their cellphones.

The other bills would require operators of websites that collect personal information to post privacy policies and bar employers from accessing employees’ social media passwords. Supporters say it’s about having the laws catch up with the technology that we use every day.
