CISPA Dead (for now) in US Senate
Since CISPA is Dead (for now) in the US Senate, this change to EPCA will actually take effect and have the desired result.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has cleared the way for an amendment to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) that will require the police to get a warrant before rummaging through your emails.

Doesn't matter. If they want your email, they'll look regardless. If there is something of interest, then they'll unofficially make copies first and request a search warrant. Once they have the search warrant, then they will "officially" look through the emails.
Simple rule of thumb, if you are doing something wrong, illegal or immoral, don't leave a paper trail. This is the 21rst century, with more rights to the crazies and control mongers, less rights for people wobbling in the lines.
Get your minds around it or do something about it. plain and simple.
