How the CLOUD Act impacts your Data Privacy


AmericaOutLoud podcast covers the recently passed CLOUD Act

This bill, benignly titled the Clarifying Overseas Use of Data (“CLOUD”) Act, removes the need for foreign countries to obtain a search warrant before demanding data from US companies. This bill was never debated. It wasn’t reviewed or marked up by a single committee. There were no hearings. But it is now law. David Ruiz, from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, helps us to understand the stark implications of this new law and together we explore how it can be used to completely circumvent your 4th Amendment rights.
