Analysis of Gov’t Data Mining and Privacy

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on May 29, 2003

From the Center for Democracy and Technology, this analysis, Privacy’s Gap: The Largely Non-Existent Legal Framework for Government Mining of Commercial Data, [pdf] May 28, 2003. Quoting from the report, “The government has argued that it should have the same access to consumer data that the private sector has, but in fact it seeks access on very different terms because the private sector is subject to strict rules when it uses consumer information – rules that do not apply to the government’s proposed anti-terrorism uses.”
