Do Not Track and the Future of Privacy

Vicky Brock, Co-Founder, Highland Business Research
Justin Brookman, Director, Consumer Privacy at Center for Democracy & Technology
John McKean, Executive Director, Center for Information Based Competition
This topic is downright incendiary so we've brought together a combustible combination of perspectives for an open discussion. Vicky, a Certified Web Analyst with a withering perspective on the legal wrangling going on in the European Union, voices her concerns about the baby being legislated with the bathwater. Justin, Director for CDT's Project on Consumer Privacy, is an advocate of anonymous web participation and believes offering consumers more privacy choices is a good thing and advocates for substantive and enforceable baseline legal protections. Throwing a curve ball into the whole proceeding, John foresees a future where consumers are in total control of their own data - and he's starting to make it happen in conjunction with some of the world's largest companies. Find out what the laws look like, what the ethical considerations are and what the future holds.
