Who's Protecting Your Privacy Rights
Recently, Canada's Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart found Facebook violated federal privacy law and had failed to implement corrective measures with respect to four major privacy gaps. Curiously absent from the decision and media coverage was any mention of enforcement action resulting from such findings. Instead, the media reported the privacy commissioner and Facebook were “at odds” but (thank goodness) were “pledging co-operation” and “continuing dialogue.” Published in the October 2009 issue of Canadian Lawyer as part of Bryan Haynes' regular column.
