Prohibits wire or electronic service providers from releasing information
regarding customers' communications, unless the release is specifically authorized
by a court order, subpoena, warrant, or other exception. Improperly releasing
such information can result in the provider being ordered to pay penalties.
However, ECPA provides a safe harbor for service providers that improperly release
information in good faith reliance on a court order, subpoena, or warrant.
