Privacy in a Networked World

By Doug Lichtman

Posted on February 5, 2010

Social networking sites, search engines, and the like all gather an enormous amount of information about individual users. The information has value to these businesses in terms of tailoring advertisements and calibrating product offerings and pricing. But what constraints does the law place upon the acquisition, storage, and use of this data? In this program, recorded in December 2008, IP Colloquium looks at privacy law from a distinctly modern perspective, using recent controversies to highlight not only relevant rules but also strategic tradeoffs inherent in collecting personal information from a user community. Guests include: Eric Goldman, Professor at Santa Clara University of Law and Dan Solove, Professor of Law at George Washington University. UCLA law professor Doug Lichtman hosts.

Privacy in a Networked World is available online at IP Colloquium's Web site, or you can begin listening to it from the  download link (below).  And, as per usual, lawyers who listen can earn free CLE credit in California, New York, Texas, Illinois and several other states.
