Webinar – Privacy Online: What’s being done to protect you?

October 26, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0

Moderator: Barry Umansky, J.D.

Lots of people are talking about privacy, but who is doing something about it? People’s activity is tracked online, but is that an invasion of privacy? People share all sorts of information through social networks: do they have expectations that what they share will only be seen by their friends? In fact, is there any expectation of privacy for what happens online?

In fact, all sorts of people are discussing all sorts of options regarding the rights of privacy. Do we need legislation that provides for a Privacy Bill of Rights? Or, would it be better to ask the Federal Trade Commission to step in to enforce restrictions? What about rules that already exist, such as the Child Online Privacy Act – are they successful? If yes, what are we worried about? If no, then what good will more legislation do? Europeans seem to protect privacy more than Americans – should we be following their lead?
