ALA Issues Statement on Apple/FBI Encryption Controversy

March 1, 2016

This controversy is so much more involved and multi-faceted (and I think important to learn about and discuss!) than I appreciated earlier.  As more read ebooks on smartphones, the issue of how far companies are obligated to go to assist law enforcement in bypassing their own privacy and security features will be of interest to many.  Regardless of your take (if you have one), I just wanted to point out the relevant ALA press release and another very well-linked blog post from the Center for the Future of Libraries (also on the ALA website) covering many of the issues and positions.

NPR also has an article with very clear FAQ style explanation and background.
