"Copyright, Courts & Criminals: An Update on Privacy Legislation in Canada"

140 St. George, Room 728
Faculty of Information Studies (building adjacent to Robarts Library)
University of Toronto


This lecture focuses on the privacy implications of several pieces of 
Canadian legislation. It will touch upon the Canadian copyright laws (our 
own DMCA), the debate over the public or private nature of court records 
(what are the implications of this choice?), and the overlapping 
anti-terrorism and money laudering legislaitons. Its goal is to increase 
our knowledge and foment awareness of the privacy dimensions of these 
bills. Ken Anderson will address these issues from a legal standpoint and 
will examine their implications for our private life.


Ken Anderson is the Director of Legal & Corporate Services for the 
Information and Privacy Commissioner/Ontario based in Toronto. Ken is a 
frequent speaker on privacy issues and he currently teaches privacy law for
