Problems with Self-Regulation of Online Privacy -     Abstract:  In this paper, I will briefly define privacy and "fair information practices."  Then I will discuss the regime of self-regulation that is currently in place in the United States to protect these principles as they relate to consumer online data collection and dissemination.  Specifically, I will show that there are some problems with this system.  In particular, I will point out that privacy practices are not universal, and that companies may not be driven to implement fair information practices by market forces because of the strong financial incentives for them to do otherwise.  Finally, I will suggest that legislation like that used in the European Union might be a viable...   [tags: Essay on Internet Privacy]
