There will be government agency and policing authorities who will perceive this ruling as counter to security interests. The New Jersey Supreme Court has recognized that internet users do have the expectation of privacy. It is a ruling that is a small step in narrow the gap between legislation / judicial opinion and the advancement of technology. In New Jersey, the Supreme Court has recognized that privacy does matter on the internet.
