This week, Iread Google’s privacy policy as a way to familiarise yourselves with data protection policy.

Also read Ian Lloyd, IT Law (3rd Edn 2000 4th Edn 2005) Chapter 3 for background, Chapter 4 for next week’s lecture. You will find many copies in the library and either edition is adequate for background.

Background reading that may be useful is:
Bennett and Raab (2006) MIT Press, The Governance of Privacy, for the policy background.
