In 1986 the Bangles were all the rage, Donkey Kong was a hot video game, mobile phones were bigger than your head, and the World Wide Web didn't even exist. A lot has changed since then - but electronic privacy law has not. Many Web 2.0 startups don’t realize it but there is a 1986 federal privacy law that applies directly to them and could lead to lawsuits or even criminal liability if users’ data is improperly monitored or disclosed. Does your company comply with the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (“ECPA”) of 1986, or even know that it exists? Do you know what to do when the government or anyone else asks for—or demands—records about your users? Join our panel of veteran Internet lawyers from privacy orgs like ACLU and EFF and companies like Google and Facebook, who will give you a basic understanding of how ECPA affects your business and provide an update on the coalition effort in Washington, D.C. to update this antiquated law to better protect privacy and innovation in the 21st century.
