The Great Privacy Debate

Adam Thierer

Senior Research Fellow

TechFreedom and the Electronic Privacy Information Center co-hosted a parliamentary-style debate on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 on whether "Consumer privacy can be adequately protected without new legislation." The debate was moderated by Declan McCullagh of CNET and included TechFreedom President Berin Szoka and Mercatus Center Senior Research Fellow Adam Thierer in support of the motion. Against the motion were EPIC Executive Director Marc Rotenberg and Andrew Keen, author of the recently published "Digital Vertigo: How Today's Online Social Revolution Is Dividing, Diminishing, and Disorienting Us."
