Short Take: Net privacy group to campaign for crypto awareness

The Americans for Computer Privacy July 22 will unveil its TV, print, and online campaign to raise public awareness about the long-standing debate over encryption export limits. The spots are expected to feature a cat burglar decrypting a person's computer files, gaining access to medical records and checking-account data. Another commercial shows an older couple discussing how the government wants to get at their private files.
