“We write to urge your office to investigate Google’s “Gmail” service. We believe that Gmail violates California Penal Code § 631, which governs eavesdropping on confidential communications. In light of California’s heightened statutory and Constitutional privacy guarantees, we think it incumbent on the Office of the Attorney General to intervene to protect the integrity of individuals’ e-mail communications. Below, we explain that Google’s Gmail service represents an unprecedented invasion into the sanctity of private communications and that it violates California’s wiretapping laws.”
