The Internet: Do We Really Have No Privacy and Should We Just Get Over It?

Michael Geist - Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law, University of Ottawa

Get over it."  This talk will examine whether Scott McNealy was right.  Have new technologies effectively wiped away our personal privacy?  Will the government's legislative proposals do more harm than good?  Are efforts to preserve privacy legislation doomed?
