New Edition of Solove & Schwartz’s Privacy Law Fundamentals: Must-Read (and Check out the Video)

Privacy leading lights Dan Solove and Paul Schwartz have recently released the 2013 edition of Privacy Law Fundamentals, a must-have for privacy practitioners, scholars, students, and really anyone who cares about privacy.

Privacy Law Fundamentals is an essential primer of the state of privacy law, capturing the up-to-date developments in legislation, FTC enforcement actions, and cases here and abroad.  As Chief Privacy Officers like Intel’s David Hoffman and renown privacy practitioners like Hogan’s Chris Wolf and Covington’s Kurt Wimmer agree, Privacy Law Fundamentals is an “essential” and “authoritative guide” on privacy law, compact and incredibly useful.  For those of you who know Dan and Paul, their work is not only incredibly wise and helpful but also dispensed in person with serious humor.  Check out this You Tube video, “Privacy Law in 60 Seconds,” to see what I mean.  I think that Psy may have a run for his money on making us smile.

    Ah, c’mon, ECPA isn’t that hard.

    The statute “is famous (if not infamous) for its lack of clarity.” Steve Jackson Games v. US Secret Service, 36 F.3d 457, 462 (5th Cir. 1994). 🙂

    Joel, that was a reference to the Wiretap Act: Usually, references to ECPA mean the Stored Communication Act, not the Wiretap Act.

    (Oh, and I should add that it is true that some people say the SCA is hard. I just don’t think it’s as hard as people say.)
