CNN News – “Internet Privacy Interview”

12.17.10

My recent interview about "Internet Privacy" by CNN’s anchor Brooke Baldwin was very timely since the next day the Department of Comme rce called for the creation of a Federal Office to Guide Online Privacy and published a white paper entitled: “Commercial Data Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy: A Dynamic Policy Framework.” Although the proposed the new proposed Privacy Office would be part of the Department of Commerce the proposal was that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) should be responsible for enforcement. Since Internet privacy is front page news because of a myriad of Internet sites, the FTC continues to keep an eye on protecting US citizens while at the same time the EU is also evaluating its 1995 Data Directive. In the US emails are generally private to employers, but in the EU (Canada, Japan, and other countries) emails are generally private to employees. So as the Internet and Social Media expand world-wide communications, which laws apply to email and text communications are still unclear. Stay tuned.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
