Re: The market is now open
Broadway I don't think its Apple's fault or any other technology company.We need standards in these cases. This is not only an issue in the case of terrorism but in other crimes where evidence is housed on a technology device. It is an ethical standard that needs to be established for how we handle technology in criminal situations. If a pedophile is arrested can the police access their computer or phone for evidence or is the data private even though it might identify other victims and make the case stronger? These are all the questions we need to answer to establish standards and processes so that we don't need to go to court. It really is a terms and conditions revision to how our data is used in certain circumstances.
Today, it is already happening without the public being aware of it. There are times when the government can access phone records calls etc. in cases of national security. It is part of our existing laws the technology just needs to be addressed.Dealing with these issues as one offs will only create a backlog in the courts.
