The Fourth Amendment Related to Technology

Introduction

In recent years, it seems that the Fourth Amendment struggles to keep up with the Internet and advancing technology. Part of the struggle is data privacy. If the technology is publicly available does that limit a persons right to privacy? Information can be protected in a closed container, such as a computer. However, when people begin sharing files and posting them on the web that expectation of privacy can be lost. When customers subscribe to any particular Internet service provider they give up their expectation of privacy through allowing the service provider to gain customer account records.


The Fourth Amendment also does not protect an individual when a search and seizure is done by a private citizen acting on his own agenda and reports his findings to law enforcement.
