The Federal Trade Commission, a US agency created in 1914 to police the problem of 'bigness', has evolved into the most important regulator of information privacy - and thus innovation policy - in the world. Its policies profoundly affect business practices and serve to regulate most of the consumer economy. In short, it now regulates our technological future. Despite its stature, however, the agency is often poorly understood by observers and even those who practice before it. This volume by Chris Jay Hoofnagle - an internationally recognized scholar with more than fifteen years of experience interacting with the FTC - is designed to redress this confusion by explaining how the FTC arrived at its current position of power. It will be essential reading for lawyers, legal academics, political scientists, historians and anyone else interested in understanding the FTC's privacy activities and how they fit in the context of the agency's broader consumer protection mission.

Chapter 1 of the textbook focuses on the four common law invasion of privacy torts, plus the publicity tort and breach of confidentiality. Chapter 2 focuses on constitutional law, with special attention to the First, Fourth and 14th Amendments. Chapter 3 includes cases and materials that lay out federal information policy, including fair information practice standards reflected in the Privacy Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Family Education and Right to Privacy Act, The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, HIPPA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and many others. Chapter 4 takes up communications privacy and federal approaches to the regulation of intelligence, law enforcement and private surveillance. All of this is accomplished with considerable attention to the ethical, social and policy foundations of the field.

Das Internet ist eine der bedeutendsten technologischen Errungenschaften der Geschichte. Es erlaubt Menschen in aller Welt Zugang zu umfassenden Informationen, unterstützt die weltweite Kommunikation und Vernetzung und fungiert als globaler Marktplatz. Dabei bieten die vielfältigen Angebote im Internet jedoch nicht nur Chancen; sie werfen auch Fragen des Datenschutzes, der Persönlichkeitsentfaltung und der Privatsphäre auf. Dieses Phänomen wird gemeinhin als das Privatheitsparadoxon bezeichnet. Aufgrund der großen Bedeutung von Privatheit im Internet hat acatech 2011 ein Projekt initiiert, das sich mit dem Privatheitsparadoxon wissenschaftlich auseinandersetzt. Dieser Band ist der erste Teil einer acatech STUDIE zum Projekt „Internet Privacy – Eine Kultur der Privatsphäre und des Vertrauens im Internet“. Die Autoren leisten eine Bestandsaufnahme der existierenden individuellen und gesellschaftlichen Vorstellungen von Privatsphäre im Internet sowie der entsprechenden rechtlichen, technischen, ökonomischen und ethischen Rahmenbedingungen.

The Internet is the most significant medium of both commercial and financial communications and transactions. It has become the nation's primary vehicle for the exchange of news, mail, and general information. Unfortunately, these benefits often expose Internet users to serious privacy risks which may have catastrophic results. Thus, it is crucial that Internet users understand how to safely and securely "surf the net," without exposing themselves to criminal activities which infringe on their privacy. This almanac discusses some of the most important security methods, including the effective use of passwords, utilizing virus software, installing firewalls, understanding encryption technology, and being vigilant about the type of information one shares on the Internet. Internet identity theft is also addressed. In addition, this fully revised publication outlines Internet privacy policies and applicable laws placed upon various entities designed to protect private information of Internet users. A discussion of online privacy protection for children, which encompasses the governing laws are included. Finally, this almanac sets forth the role of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in enforcing privacy rights, including a review of some of the major enforcement cases brought by the FTC. The Appendix provides resource directories, applicable statutes, and other pertinent information and data. The Glossary contains definitions of the terms used throughout the almanac.

Seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, electronic databases are compiling information about you. As you surf the Internet, an unprecedented amount of your personal information is being recorded and preserved forever in the digital minds of computers. For each individual, these databases create a profile of activities, interests, and preferences used to investigate backgrounds, check credit, market products, and make a wide variety of decisions affecting our lives. The creation and use of these databases—which Daniel J. Solove calls “digital dossiers”—has thus far gone largely unchecked. In this startling account of new technologies for gathering and using personal data, Solove explains why digital dossiers pose a grave threat to our privacy. The Digital Person sets forth a new understanding of what privacy is, one that is appropriate for the new challenges of the Information Age. Solove recommends how the law can be reformed to simultaneously protect our privacy and allow us to enjoy the benefits of our increasingly digital world. The first volume in the series EX MACHINA: LAW, TECHNOLOGY, AND SOCIETY

This book analyses the legal approach to personal data taken by different fields of law. An increasing number of business models in the digital economy rely on personal data as a key input. In exchange for sharing their data, online users benefit from personalized and innovative services. But companies’ collection and use of personal data raise questions about privacy and fundamental rights. Moreover, given the substantial commercial and strategic value of personal data, their accumulation, control and use may raise competition concerns and negatively affect consumers. To establish a legal framework that ensures an adequate level of protection of personal data while at the same time providing an open and level playing field for businesses to develop innovative data-based services is a challenging task.With this objective in mind and against the background of the uniform rules set by the EU General Data Protection Regulation, the contributions to this book examine the significance and legal treatment of personal data in competition law, consumer protection law, general civil law and intellectual property law. Instead of providing an isolated analysis of the different areas of law, the book focuses on both synergies and tensions between the different legal fields, exploring potential ways to develop an integrated legal approach to personal data.
