The legislation revises the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act that gives law enforcement access to emails or other online data stored electronically for more than 180 days if they can show "reasonable grounds to believe" they would be useful to an investigation.

When an operating system upgrade is released for your personal computer, how soon do you install it?
ASAP -- I like to have the latest software and security features as soon as they become available.
After a Couple of Weeks -- I wait a little while in case there are problems reported by first users of the new OS.
After One Month or Longer -- I'm skeptical of new software versions and want to be confident that bugs have been fixed.
Maybe Never -- If my computer is working, my view is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
