Australian Law Reform Commission asks: is privacy passe?

The Australian Law Reform Commission Issues Paper "Review of Privacy" has been released for discussion and comment. Its 616 pages will take a little time to absorb. Issues Paper 31, Review of Privacy.

In its media statement the Commission says that it is seeking input - it poses 142 specific questions - on how Australians value privacy, privacy concerns and possible responses. A major issue is to reduce complexity - some organisations have to comply with up to 6 layers of privacy regulation - and develop national consistency.
