Freedom of Speech and Injunctions in Intellectual Property Cases

Standards Governing Preliminary Injunctions in Copyright Cases A. History 1. England 2. United States B. Say we think a new book is going to libel us, and we ask a court for a preliminary injunction against the book's publication. Too bad, the court will certainly say; a content-based preliminary injunction of speech would be a blatantly unconstitutional prior restraint. In copyright cases, though, preliminary injunctions are granted pretty much as a matter of course, even when the defendant has engaged in creative adaptation, not just literal copying. We explore this question below. In Part III, we step back and ask whether this inquiry has cast some doubt on the prior restraint doctrine itself--whether copyright law's tolerance of preliminary injunctions might be right, and the free speech doctrine's condemnation of such injunctions might be wrong.

Should Companies Sell Privacy Offsets? - Science and Tech

We already "pay" for our online services by looking at advertising that has been augmented with personal data gleaned from our Internet perambulations. Maybe it's time we formalized the value of users' data. Then, to opt out of tracking, users could simply pay the difference between what they're worth to service providers with and without their data attached. Should you own your own data?

Players and Pawns in the Game of Privacy

People like me can hardly take their eye off the news for a moment. This morning I was trying to do three things at once: follow David Allen Green's evidence at the Leveson inquiry (where amongst other things he was talking about the NightJack story which has significant privacy implications), listen to Viviane Reding talking about the new reforms to the data protection regime in Europe, and discover what was going on in the emerging story of 02's apparent sending of people's mobile numbers to websites visited via their mobile phones.... Big issues... and lots of media coverage... and lots of opportunities for academics, advocates of one position or other, technical experts and so forth to write/talk/tweet/blog etc on the subject. And many of us are taking the opportunity to say our bit, as we like to do. A good thing?

Data as a commodity. European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights - FRA. L'impressionnante profusion des initiatives tendant à la révision de la directive de 1995 sur la protection des données. Depuis plusieurs mois, la CNIL constate une augmentation du nombre de projets liés, directement ou indirectement, à la révision de la directive européenne relative à la protection des données personnelles.

Au niveau de la Commission européenne, plusieurs études ont été lancées : Une étude comparative sur les différentes approches face aux nouveaux défis de la protection des données.

Irish ministers fight EU bid to give Israel data - Republic of Ireland, Local & National

A special European Commission committee was forced to call the meeting after Justice Minister Dermot Ahern blocked a bid to push through the plan "on the nod" without consultation with government ministers from EU states. The commission is comprised of officials from the 27 member states and Ireland will be represented today by a senior official from the Department of Justice. Before yesterday's Cabinet meeting, Mr Ahern met Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin to discuss the Brussels talks and the two men agreed that Ireland should push for a vote by the committee and then oppose the plan. Global Privacy Enforcement Authorities Launch Cooperative Network and Website. Global Privacy Enforcement Network Launches Website. Data Protection Law In India. Data Protection Law In India-Needs And Position The age of Internet has taken on India to new heights of excellence in education, medicine, communication, public services and almost all walks of governance.

In the IT sector, Indian professionals have built for themselves an enviable global reputation through hard work, dedication and commitment. Development in one sphere also has an impact over other spheres of life. This follows that with the increasing use of internet, need for changes in law is inevitable. Internet has in store a huge amount of data for different kind of people with different requirements. At the outset it is needful to discuss briefly about Data Protection. Libe_20100913_1500. Gov 2.0 Summit 2010: Osama Bedier, "PayPal: What We Do with Private..." Reputation bankruptcy. Google CEO Eric Schmidt created buzz (and some shock and criticism) when he suggested in a recent Wall Street Journal interview that, in the not too distant future, “every young person…will be entitled automatically to change his or her name on reaching adulthood in order to disown youthful hijinks stored on their friends’ social media sites.”

I’ve been intrigued by these concepts, too, and while I don’t think people should have to change their names to escape their pasts — whether earned or unearned — I like the idea of reputation bankruptcy. It’s taken up as a partial solution to peer-to-peer privacy problems in the Future of the Internet: Search is central to a functioning Web, and reputation has become central to search.

Lots of personal info is deducible from 1 click, Wall Street Journal article On the Web's Cutting Edge, Anonymity in Name Only (a must read by Emily Steel & Julia Angwin) just reported - "From a single click on a web site, [New York ad company] [x+1] correctly identified Carrie Isaac as a young Colorado Springs parent who lives on about $50,000 a year, shops at Wal-Mart and rents kids' videos… deduced that Paul Boulifard, a Nashville architect, is childless, likes to travel and buys used cars… determined that Thomas Burney, a Colorado building contractor, is a skier with a college degree and looks like he has good credit.

Children's rights group threatens ICO with judicial review.

High performance access to file storage Children's Rights Group ARCH has threatened to take the Information Commissioner to a judicial review after the data regulator declined to take enforcement action the Youth Justice Board for unlawfully collecting and distributing data. According to Terri Dowty, Director of ARCH, the Youth Justice Board (YJB) is continuing to process data without consent, in a manner that is possibly discriminatory and even dangerous to the individuals concerned. However, despite an admission by the Information Commissioner that his office may have misunderstood what the YJB was doing with its data, and an undertaking to investigate the matter further, no enforcement action has yet been taken.

A note from the ICO to ARCH suggests that its reluctance to take such action is primarily because the ICO initially got the law wrong, and since the YJB has been operating unlawfully for a year with its blessing, it would be wrong to intervene in haste now. Regulating the Use of Social Media Data. If you were to walk into my office, I’d have a pretty decent sense of your gender, your age, your race, and other identity markers. My knowledge wouldn’t be perfect, but it would give me plenty of information that I could use to discriminate against you if I felt like it. The law doesn’t prohibit me for “collecting” this information in a job interview nor does it say that discrimination is acceptable if you “shared” this information with me. That’s good news given that faking what’s written on your body is bloody hard.

What the law does is regulate how this information can be used by me, the theoretical employer.

Data Protection and Privacy Laws. Devices must come with data-wipe function, says privacy regulato. The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) Peter Hustinx regulates EU organisations' privacy practices and advises on policy and legislation. He has published an opinion on planned changes to EU waste laws. Hustinx said that the European Commission should have considered the data protection and privacy risks of the re-use and dumping of electronic goods right from the outset of its plan to revise waste laws. The Commission has said it will revise the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive to solve technical, administrative and legal problems in the law, which forces producers and retailers of electronic goods to take more responsibility for their disposal and recycling.

ECJ clears up confusion between data protection principles and the right of access to public documents. The recent case of the European Commission v Bavarian Lager has provided useful guidance for public bodies faced with a request to disclose public documents (eg under the Freedom of Information Act), but concerned disclosing personal data (such as names) included in the documents.

It appears that without express consent from the individual data subject, or failing that, an express and legitimate justification (such as an overriding public interest) or convincing argument to disclose, public bodies will not be compelled to disclose personal data contained in documents to which there is a public right of access. The case concerned a request by Bavarian Lager (under the EC's regulations regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents) for access to minutes of a meeting of the Commission. The Commission provided the minutes, but blanked out certain names of attendees to the meeting.
