This has to do with a federal court decision regarding a Canadian man who had kiddie **** on his laptop. Customs suspected him and accessed the images and arrested him. The man sued claiming they had no right to access his laptop. The courts disagreed and said Customs can pretty much do whatever they want in searching for contraband.
