ABSTRACT
This article discusses the controversies surrounding the USA PATRIOT Act, which became one of the first responses to the war on terrorism after September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S. Enacted in October 2001, the act responded to intelligence faults that allegedly prevented information from getting to proper authorities in time to block the attacks. The act was also intended to strengthen law-enforcement and intelligence-gathering tools to prevent future attacks. At its core, the PATRIOT Act allows the government to gather more information about more people and to share that information among additional government agencies. And this has raised concerns for many people, particularly those in the information industry.
