Privacy Protection Act stickers
The Privacy Protection Act (PPA) is a US law that prohibits ordinary law enforcement searches of materials intended for public dissemination, e.g. by citizen-journalists.
However, in order for you to have the protection of the Act, the person wanting to search your items has to know that they contain materials intended for publication.
So here's a simple solution: stickers you can use to easily label your notebooks, computer, smartphone, etc.
If you want to learn more, read EPIC's site about the Privacy Protection Act.
