WSLL Recommends: Proskauer on Privacy

The Practising Law Institute publishes Proskauer on Privacy: a guide to privacy and data security law in the information age as part of the Corporate and Securities Law Library. This one volume title is updated semi-annually with the help of industry experts and packs a wealth of information. A wide range of privacy topics are covered including:
  • Medical privacy
  • State privacy laws
  • The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
  • Financial privacy
  • Workplace privacy law
  • Privacy of electronic communications
  • Federal Trade Commission enforcement of privacy
The opening chapter lays out a detailed history of information privacy law starting in Colonial America and ending with the current multitude of privacy laws. The treatise is updated on advances in technology and their impact on privacy with sections on text messaging, human tracking devices using geolocation technology and behavioral marketing techniques on the internet.

Of special interest to our readers may be the chapter on state privacy laws. This chapter contains statutory references and case annotations along with a discussion about the impact of state legislation which conflicts with federal legislation.

Check out this treatise for all your privacy research needs.
