Privacy in the #digitalage - what do the Courts say?
The right to privacy is one of the most fundamental rights during the digital age we live in.
In a case called Carpenter v. the United States, the #Court stated that governments could not force companies to provide sensitive data about a person, and they need a warrant to do that.
Still, the law does not stop #governments from buying the data from intermediaries.
Advances in #technology have eroded Fourth Amendment protections, and the legal panorama on privacy looks old now.
Rewriting the privacy rules for the age of apps is imperative nowadays.
