Melbourne privacy conference later this month

A weighty privacy conference for academics and lawyers organised by the Faculty of Law at Monash University 23-24 February will cover a wide range of current and emerging issues in Australian privacy law, provide commentary on the law reform agenda, and discuss recent European developments in data protection and privacy law:
  • Australian privacy law reform
  • Privacy and Data Protection in Europe
  • Common law protection of privacy
  • Privacy and criminal justice
  • Privacy and the Internet
  • Theoretical and rights-based approaches to privacy
  • Privacy and Media Freedom
  • Should Australia introduce a statutory privacy tort?
I won't be there but sounds a good one.

  1. MuckRock looks interesting.

    Not only built from "Django, Lamson, and other open source technologies", I reckon it would be impossible to do it with commercial products.

    Some Govt departments issue reports that are locked up in proprietary formats, eg, DFAT and MS Excel. That's not good enough.
