Regulating Transaction Surveillance by the Government

Show Summary Details


This chapter, which describes in more detail the current legal regulation of transaction surveillance in the United States and provides suggestions on how it can be improved, criticizes the provisions of the proposed reform of the transaction surveillance regulation related to probable cause and reasonable suspicion. It argues that although not all recorded information warrants maximum protection from government intrusion, much of it deserves far better protection than it receives today.
