10:15 – 11:00 a.m.  Privacy’s Roots
Today, the concepts of online privacy, geo-locational privacy, data privacy, and other types of informational privacy dominate cyberlaw discussion; however, each of these terms are relatively new under the law and far afield from the Constitutional concept of freedom from government search and seizure. Join us for this in-depth discussion on how privacy law has developed in America over the years and how past privacy law principles have been carried into our current ideas and norms about information privacy.
Prof. Steven J. Macias, Southern Illinois University School of Law, Carbondale

Matthew W. Van Hise, Assistant Attorney General, Illinois Attorney General’s Office, Springfield

11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  What’s Hot in Advertising and Privacy Enforcement and Regulation?
It’s not uncommon for the Federal Trade Commission to announce new consumer protection guidelines, to testify before Congress regarding the need to strengthen government control, or to take action against a company for false advertising or a breach in privacy. Indeed, millions of dollars have been paid in fines for deceptive marketing, complaints against company senior executives, and data security actions mandated by the Federal Trade Commission. This presentation explores hot topic issues in the areas of advertising, privacy enforcement, and privacy regulation, including compliance expectations, future trends, and an update on what’s happening at the Federal Trade Commission.
