+ - Senate to Reconsider Wiretap Immunity->

Submitted by

bughunter writes "According to Wired Threat Level, "Lawmakers are considering key changes to the Patriot Act and other spy laws — proposals that could give new life to lawsuits accusing the nation's telecommunications companies of turning over Americans' electronic communications to the government without warrants. On Oct. 1, the Senate Judiciary Committee likely will consider revoking that immunity legislation as it works to revise the Patriot Act and other spy laws with radical changes that provide for more government transparency and more privacy protections." This is big. Now would be a great time to donate $20 to the EFF, since it appears they will be heading back to court on our behalf."
