Submission + - Hosted E-mail is Protected by the Fourth Amendment (freedom-to-tinker.com) 1

Okian Warrior writes: As reported on the EFF website, today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled that the contents of the messages in an email inbox hosted on a provider's servers are protected by the Fourth Amendment, even though the messages are accessible to an email provider.
As the court puts it, "[t]he government may not compel a commercial ISP to turn over the contents of a subscriber's emails without first obtaining a warrant based on probable cause."
