Exponential increases in the use of the World Wide Web for commercial applications and the law enforcement needs of governments have raised privacy concerns of a global dimension. What digitally-transmitted and stored information should be protected and how? What is the responsibility of service providers and Web hosts? What are the roles of government and technology in providing privacy protection? This panel will explore answers to these questions from a variety of international perspectives.

Moderator: Marc Rotenberg is Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington, DC and Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University Law Center. Contact: / (202) 544-9240
