Steve Paikin and expert guests discuss and debate issues
surrounding internet privacy in a special broadcast during mesh,
Canada's Web Conference.
TORONTO, May 13 /CNW/ - Are there laws to protect your privacy on the
internet? Who enforces these laws? How much information should be shared
online? On Tuesday May 18 at 8 pm ET The Agenda with Steve Paikin
offers a revealing discussion with experts in the field of internet
privacy during mesh, Canada's Web Conference.
Guests include Ann Cavoukian, Ontario Information and Privacy
Commissioner and one of the leading privacy experts in the world; Mathew
Ingram, senior writer at GigaOm, one of the leading technology blog
networks; and David Fewer, director of the Samuelson-Glushko Canadian
Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) based at the
University of Ottawa Faculty of Law.

companies change the visibility of our private information, and whether
users are wrong to be sharing so much information or companies are wrong

happens when a company has control of our personal information, and that
company is based in a country with different privacy laws? Once
something is posted online, is it too late to start thinking about
