What difference does it make
TO YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
if a conversation
is in writing,
such as in an email,
or if it is in spoken words?
When you are on Facebook or Google or any other
internet entity, aren’t they sitting in on your
conversations and seeing and recording everything?
Bill in House Allows Internet Providers to Share Your Email and Web History “The bill would repeal safeguards that prohibit Internet service providers (ISPs) from sharing data, such as e-mails and web history, with third parties without user consent.”
DO YOU WANT YOUR EMAILS READ AND SOLD WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT?
“The companies that provide you with internet service may soon be able to sell your web browser and app history to advertisers without your consent.”…

“Vijaya Gadde, general counsel at Twitter, tweeted it’s “time to start using a VPN at home” in response to the news. A VPN, or virtual private network, is one option to protect your online identity.”

…”You’ve probably heard of Tor. Tor is everybody’s favorite free anonymity software and is relatively easy to install on a desktop. Tor is also available for Android through a package called Orbot, which is slightly more difficult to install. Once you’re up and running, you can browse the web anonymously, and even weasel your way into the edgy corners of the dark web, if that’s your thing.”
“Doesn’t the Fourth Amendment protect us from “unreasonable searches and seizures?…Yes. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution articulates the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”
REALLY? BUT, the internet and computers were not invented when the United States Constitution was enacted. Shouldn’t everything we do on our computers be protected even though we are using digital “papers” by writing e-mails and aren’t computers our “effects”?
What are your rights to privacy to be

OH, REALLY? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
RECORDING CONFIDENTIAL SOUND RECORDINGS
AND CONFIDENTIAL E-MAIL?

TO PRIVACY, SOUND OR WRITTEN?
