File Sharing Software
If you have file sharing software on your computer, or if you use this kind of software (LimeWire, and etc.) in investigations you may want to take note of a recent case heard by the 9th Cir.
In 07-50195, US v Ganoe, the 9th Cir. held that downloading and using file sharing technology on your computer is tantamount to a waiver of privacy. Read the brief analysis from the San Diego District Attorney's Office by clicking here. Their Legal Update site is a good one for the Bookmark Bar.
