Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description The extraordinary role of information products and services and their transforming affect on virtually all aspects of human activity pose many new legal issues. This course focuses on one of the most pressing and complex sets of those issues: the impact of new information technologies and services on personal privacy. We will examine a range of information privacy issues in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in other countries, especially those issues involved in the use of the Internet and online services; privacy definitions; the values served and the costs imposed by privacy; the origins of privacy regulation; the regulatory framework applicable to privacy; private sector privacy regulation and sources of law; the role of privacy protection in electronic commerce and on the Internet; the need for new regulation in the face of alternative measures for protecting privacy; the benefits and costs of such regulation; and other values affected by privacy regulation, such as freedom of expression, electing and monitoring the conduct of public officials, and innovative and efficient markets. No technical knowledge is required. (2 credits)
