Coalition Seeks Stronger Privacy Laws

A BROAD coalition of technology companies and advocacy groups plan to push Congress to strengthen online privacy laws to protect private digital information from government access.

The group, Digital Due Process, said it wanted to ensure that as millions of people moved private documents from their filing cabinets and personal computers to the Web, those documents remained protected from easy access by law enforcement and other government authorities. The group also wants to safeguard location-based information collected by cellphone companies and application providers.
