A bunch of folks have sent in the link about the New Jersey Supreme Court ruling that ISPs need a valid subpoena to hand over private info on your account to anyone -- including the police. While people are rightfully cheering this on as an excellent decision, what's troubling is the idea that anyone has felt otherwise. ISPs (and other service providers) shouldn't be handing out your private data without a valid legal reason no matter what -- and that should not have required a legal decision to make clear.
