Discuss "The Right to Onlince Privacy".What Are Our Rights? What SHOULD They Be?

I'd like to discuss the issue of 'online privacy'....What do you think about the right to privacy vs. the public's right to safety?

In regard to internet privacy I found this online.... and I quote:

"The right to privacy in Internet activity is a serious issue facing society.Some users of the internet wish to shield their identities while participating in frank discussions of sensitive topics.

Others fulfill fantasies and harmlessly role play under the cover of a false identity in chat rooms, MUDs or the IRC.

But there are the eternal "bad apples," and on the Internet, they are the people who use anonymous servers as more than a way to avoid responsibility for controversial remarks. Cases of harassment and abuse have become increasingly frequent, aided by a cloak of anonymity.There are also problems with frauds and scam artists who elude law enforcement authorities through anonymous mailings and postings.

Other users are concerned about the proliferation of information on the Internet. Databases of court records are now available for free over the World Wide Web.

Since no formal law exists within cyberspace, Internet users can find recourse only through the applicable laws of their own government."

Let’s address US law and its relevance to the American Internet user.

Join us for another compelling conversation!

And, as always, I ask that you update your RSVP if you cannot join us as the restaurant ish holding seats for us based on how many say 'yes'....thanks, I appreciate your consideration!

    Great, wide-ranging conversation with a terrific group of interesting, thoughtful, friendly people over tasty food and drink. Great to be able to do a little bit to support Watertown, too, while having such a good time. Again, many thanks for organizing, Beverly.
