Submission + - Google, Microsoft Push Feds to Fix Privacy Laws ( 1

schwit1 writes: A coalition of the net's biggest online service providers, including Google and Microsoft, are joining with the top internet rights groups to demand Congress modernize the nation's privacy laws.

Among the reforms pushed by the so-called Digital Due Process coalition is a requirement that law enforcement get warrants from a judge when they want to force companies to turn over your e-mails, documents and location data. But despite issuing a clarion call to change privacy laws, none of the companies that are pushing citizens to store more and more sensitive information online announced any change to their own practices.
