Warrants for email and backup tapes
- From: William Allen Simpson

Our ISP was just served a warrant (out of California) demanding our
dialup logs and email backup tapes. So far, the warrant is probably
invalid, as it mis-named the company. And as far as we can tell, we are
not being charged with anything -- or at least we have not been told so.
We only have our usual contracts attorney, and he seems a bit out of his
This is pretty invasive to our customers. We'll have a dickens of a
time complying, as we don't back up client email, except at odd
intervals backing up entire systems. And we only keep dialing logs
around for a few months at a time, since we don't use them for billing.
Is anyone else having this experience? If so, what have you done?
