The Cyber Privacy Project (CPP) addresses issues about privacy raised in today's networked world. In upholding the belief that privacy is essential to democratic society , the Cyber Privacy Project anchors its approach in realizing the beneficial potential of the Constitution, laws, and policies of the United States. CPP calls for implementation of privacy protections based on First Amendment rights of privacy and anonymity, Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures, the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to due process and protection of liberty, and Ninth Amendment unenumerated rights to privacy. It also call upon similar principles in international human rights documents, state constitutions, and codes of ethics.
The Cyber Privacy Project gathers momentum behind its policy recommendations by serving as a source for the media and public discussions. The CPP makes its issues relevant to the majority of citizens by using and addressing new forms of technological communication in order to convey its message to a wide audience of individuals and groups.
