Tamlin Magee of TechEYE.net has compiled a number of state and federal laws that Magee thinks might apply to the Google employee who engaged in privacy-invasive (at the best) or illegal (at the worst) conduct. The article discusses how each of these statutes might apply to the situation:
- The Electronic Communications Privacy Act (“ECPA”) or Title 18 § 2511 of the United States Criminal Code Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) or Title 18 § 1301 (depending on the minors’ ages)
- California Penal Code Section 653.2
- Washington Law RCW 9.61.260 Cyberstalking.
