Type: Research Paper
Year: 2004

The George Washington Law Review published an article by Clinic Director Deirdre Mulligan entitled "Reasonable Expectations in Electronic Communications: A Critical Perspective on the Electronic Communications Privacy Act." The article discusses the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 (ECPA), which was passed by congress to protect privacy in the newly emerging electronic communications age. The article states that the ECPA needs to be revised in order to accommodate how users today use email and remote servers. Many users currently store credit card information and bank data which must be protected.
