Patriot Act II: More In-Depth has conducted an interview with Cindy Cohn, Legal Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, focusing on the Domestic Security Enhancement Act, or 'Patriot Act II.'

This issue has not been thoroughly covered in many places, and the article covers many specific areas that Patriot Act II would affect, including:

- Weakening of the Freedom of Information Act
- Search warrants applicable to any location in the US
- Contempt charges could be filed against you in FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] courts for claiming the 5th Amendment
- Removal of legal liability for companies violating their terms of service by disclosing your info to the government
- The ability for the federal government to extradite US-born and naturalized citizens to other nations
- Automatic immunity for agents, whether or not a search has received a warrant
- Threats to the use of encryption
- Who to contact, and who can help if you get into trouble
