Washington, D.C. – Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) recently introduced H.R. 6588, which prevents customs officials from using the pretext of border searches to conduct groundless search and seizure of Americans’ laptops and other electronic devices when they return from overseas travel. The bill does not prevent the search or seizure of laptops or other electronic devices when legitimate law enforcement purposes justify that search or seizure.

While I'm still stuck with Senators that are in the RIAA/MPAA's back pocket, at least I have a Representative who continues to do useful work that I can support. One out of three ain't bad?
