Identity, privacy, and anonymity
Professor Johnathan Turley, Professor of Law, George Washington School of Law, USA

Professor Jonathan Turley has been a leading advocate for privacy protections both in courts and in the public domain. He has written extensively on the erosion of privacy around the world. He will discuss the foundations for the robust tradition of privacy in the United States and how this tradition is being undermined by changes not only in technology but also in social attitudes. The reduction of the expectation of privacy has profound implications for the United States and comes not only from the classic ‘Big Brother’ problem (of governmental surveillance), but also the ‘Little Brother’ problem (of private companies engaging in surveillance). At the same time, rising liability systems for Internet companies and posters is stripping away the protection of anonymity. The result is what Professor Turley has called a ‘Fishbowl Society’, where citizens are living in a surveillance saturated environment.
