What Google Knows: Privacy and Internet Search Enginesomertene

Wed, 24 Oct 2007 23:02:57 +0000

Search engines are the most important phenomenon on the Internet today and Google is the gold standard of search. Google evokes ambivalent feelings. It is adored for its ingenuity, simple, modest-looking interface and superb services offered at no (evident) cost. Yet increasingly, it is feared by privacy advocates who view it as a private sector […]

In this article, published in the October 2007 issue of Privacy and Data Protection, I review recent changes in Israeli privacy and data protection law.

Haven’t posted here in quite some time. Decided to start a Hebrew blog instead. Well – maybe a good opportunity to link to a couple of articles I wrote recently.

Googled to prison?omertene

Tue, 30 Jan 2007 10:27:19 +0000

Privacy and data protection in search engine data has taken center stage last year, with the unfortunate revelation by AOL of detailed search records of over 600,000 users (ultimately leading to the resignation of the company’s CTO), and Google’s legal battle with the US government over use of search logs for law enforcement purposes (See […]

Judges Cite Wikipediaomertene

Mon, 29 Jan 2007 22:26:23 +0000

My students must love this: according to the NYT, courts are increasingly citing Wikipedia in judicial decisions. More than 100 judicial rulings have relied on Wikipedia beginning in 2004, including 13 from circuit courts of appeal. The Supreme Court thus far has never cited Wikipedia. As far as judges go, they don’t get much more conservative […]

Quite a refreshing notion […]

Wed, 24 Jan 2007 22:24:10 +0000

The US is debating proposed legislation requiring Internet service providers to retain data concerning user traffic for law enforcement purposes. Privacy advocates’ strong opposition to such “data retention” requirements aligns them, oddly enough, with ISPs, which fought similar requirements in Europe. ISPs are concerned with the cost burden of the mass storage and with commercial […]

The New York Times reports the C.I.A. and Pentagon have been issuing “national security letters” to obtain banking and credit records of hundreds of US citizens and others suspected of terrorism or espionage.
