Privacy..An Investing Wave To Watch
Privacy is one of the investing trends I suggest keeping an eye on. It is also an investing wave I highlight in my upcoming book.
A recent ruling now means Americans can be forced to decrypt their laptops.
Blackburn, a George W. Bush appointee, ruled that the Fifth Amendment posed no barrier to his decryption order. The Fifth Amendment says that nobody may be "compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself," which has become known as the right to avoid self-incrimination.
He said the All Writs Act, which dates back to 1789 and has been used to require telephone companies to aid in surveillance, could be invoked in forcing decryption of hard drives as well.
A new app for the phone is coming that allows communication over the Net without any trace being left on any server. Privacy on the Net..think of the possibilities.
