The Law and Evolving Media - Page 2
In a world where anonymity is fast becoming archaic, the protection of privacy should start in the home. Keep your information close. Find out how your data is being used and the statutory limitations of its usage before sharing it.
Privacy Versus Security
Meanwhile, The Right To Be Forgotten is a debate on privacy and security. Europe and the US have very different rules on the matter. The majority believe that privacy is breached when the Government collects and searches your data for security reasons, while a good percentage stands firm that if it is a question of security and safety, our right to privacy can be set aside, especially when you have nothing to hide.
A number of security scenarios and cases are also springing up around the US. Would you like your child to have an RFID chip to ensure his or her safety at all times? What behavioral changes will it have on our minors as they grow up in a world where they are being constantly watched? Like you, these are observations and musings on a world that is grappling with consistent changes brought about by technology and channels of communication.
Privacy Versus Personalization
When is it okay for an organization to collect your information to ensure a highly personalized experience with a brand, product or service? While the pitch sounds focused on its consumers, the end result highly benefits an organization's profitability, research and development. Should consumers' demand for more beyond the personalized service/product they are paying for be exchanged for consistent access to their behavioral and demographic data?
We are on the cusp of a change brought about by technology and communications. Lawmakers, regulators, media and thought leaders are involved in discourse on how we can evolve the law to support the trajectory of evolving media and technology. How do you feel about the changing landscape and how it affects your personal space?
