Digital Rights - Fair Use, Privacy, and the lack of clarity

Why Should I Care?


January 21, 2019 7:00 PM


9:00 pm


14 Madison Ave, Toronto


Existing laws are not adequate to address the current technology use, let alone the rise of autonomous vehicles and technology such as automated AI call centers. Canada lacks a strategy governing digital rights regarding issues such as consent, data collection, fair use, compensation, and privacy.

What should new models for consent and privacy look like? Should we be compensated for either willingly or unwillingly giving up personal information?

Bianca Wylie, a leading Digital Rights activist, and Nathaniel Erskine Smith, MP and member of the Public Safety and National Security Committee, will be joining us on January 21, 2019.
