Episode Details

The idea of "privacy" has undergone significant changes in the digital age, as has the idea of privacy "harm." Concerns about what some see as a U.S. "dragnet" and unwarranted privacy intrusions have compelled other countries to revamp their own privacy protections. Legislation, both at home and abroad, hasn't kept pace with technological developments, leaving some wondering if privacy as we know it is long dead.
