Recently, the editors of this blog and of DWT's Broadcast Law Blog held a joint webinar for the Texas Association of Broadcasters that explored the landscape of of privacy issues that media companies may face. Subjects ranged from those that arise in the context of news-gathering and -reporting and advertising, to those implicating “robo-calling,” telemarketing and “spam,” to online issues involving collection of personal information about children and/or for targeted ads and app use, and data securitization.

There is a summary of the presentation on the Broadcast law Blog, and the slides from the session, providing a good outline of many of the basic legal concepts that arise in connection with privacy issues, are available here.
