It seems that Department of Homeland Security authorized the custom agents to seize laptops and other digital files storage devices from travelers returning from abroad. So far this has been done on selective bases, some investigative reporters and businessmen were subject to seisures. I recently returned from a cruise which involved port of call outside of US, the custom agents were little upset with me because my laptop was stowed away in my backback with my cameras, but no further hassle was incurred fortunately. Those of you planning to travel outside of USA better do some reading on this subject. Here is the link(copy and paste into your browser): http://www.usnews.com/articles/news/...-without-cause

Wow... sounds serious,

Although that I have been in & out of the US and Hong Kong more than 10 times last few years without running into any problems.

I guess I should burn extra backups into DVD's just to be safe.

I have never been a fan in the ACLU's corner, I guess things are starting to turn me that way.
