Bill proposed to regulate collection, use of GPS tracking data

Jaikumar Vijayan, Computerworld | June 15, 2011
Two lawmakers today proposed a bipartisan measure that would regulate how law enforcement agencies and companies can access and use geo-location data gathered from cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices.

In a statement this morning, the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA) said that the proposed bill would clear away some of the confusion surrounding the issue.

"CCIA supports this long-overdue reform that creates clear rules for a 21st century mobile wireless space marked so far by chaos and misunderstandings," the group's CEO, Ed Black. "The bill creates a universal warrant standard for all geolocation information, regardless of how or when it is obtained, sending a clear signal to users that this information is protected."
