2012 US Democrats Platform Endorses Internet Privacy

4 September 2012:  The Electronic Privacy Information Centre (EPIC) reports that the 2012 US Democratic Party National Platform supports the Obama administration’s Internet Privacy Bill of Rights to protect consumer privacy. Separate provisions in the platform call for privacy protections for broadband deployment, intellectual property enforcement, and cybersecurity laws; the Democratic platform opposes voter identification laws.  However, the platform is silent on the Fourth Amendment, and retreats from the 2008 Democratic platform that opposed surveillance of individuals that were not suspected of a crime.
