Information invasion?


Ponder some of the student research topics in this spring’s “Law, Technology, and Society” course (then unplug your PC and take your phone off the hook):

• health-insurance privacy

• background checks

• ChoicePoint and consumer database security

• Wal-Mart and radio-frequency ID tags

• radio-frequency ID for medical records

• the priest-penitent privilege

• Google desktop searches

• delayed-notify, “sneak and peek”warrants
• airport passenger screening

• supermarket saver cards

• Webcams and neighborhood watch programs
