I am writing to invite you to attend the Law & Economics Center’s Public Policy Conference on The Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security. The conference will be offered by the LEC’s Henry G. Manne Program in Law & Economics Studies on Wednesday, June 19 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The full program can be viewed here.
Consumers have an incredible array of technologies and services available to them online. As these technologies have progressed, there are growing questions as to what policies are best suited to protect consumers and encourage industry innovation. Topics include the role of the state attorneys general in enforcing privacy laws, the role of privacy in antitrust analysis, how privacy regulation affects competition, and a discussion of the rapidly changing landscape of spam, spyware, data portability, and industry data retention guidelines.

I hope to see you in June.
