EFF Co-Founder on Privacy in the Internet Age
ONLINE PRIVACYDecember 22, 2010
On the heels of recent privacy efforts by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, Commerce Department and technology companies from across the globe, the BBC has published a dialogue with Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Co-founder John Perry Barlow on changes to privacy in this online age and the battle between what governments and organizations know about individuals. Perry Barlow also weighs in with thoughts on how several global corporations do business with regard to privacy and transparency. Individual privacy is eroding, he suggests, adding that it is not "safe to have a world where the individual has no privacy and the institutions go on being private."
