The Digital Media Lawyer Blog:  “A dominant theme at this week’s Digital Hollywood conference is the tension between the need to for truly targeted advertising to online audiences and an individual’s right to privacy. The Internet creates the ability for businesses to gather a marketer’s dream world of data about their customers. This can include identification data (name, address, phone number, email address), demographic data (age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation), financial data (bank and credit card account data), and behavioral data (browsing history, downloading history) and much, much more. If this type of data falls into the wrong hands, it can subject the customer or identify fraud. But even many purely commercial uses can cause embarrassment or harm to the consumer.”
