Privacy Program Part I – Privacy in Commercial Settings

October 2, 2013

In this world dominated by the Internet, your personal information is everywhere.  Who is protecting you?  Federal and State Legislatures? The FTC? The Courts? and how far does your protection extend?  

Our panel of experts will discuss:

   * what’s the latest in consumer privacy law?  Who has standing to sue post Amnesty v. Clapper? Do statutory damages invite cases and/or help them settle?  What about privacy class actions?

   * what is the FTC doing and what are the evolving trends in its enforcement?  

   * what are the trends in California and other states both as to statutes and case law? And more!!
