Privacy & Access Series: Privacy in Entertainment

The modern information society is governed by a central tension between drives to promote transparency and open access to information, and a concomitant need to safeguard privacy and personal dignity. This series explores different issues within that dynamic, featuring leading speakers from academia, civil society, and government, who have made unique contributions to how information is shared, protected, and regulated.

The series, which is organized by the UCLA Institute for Technology Law & Policy and the Ziffren Institute for Media, Entertainment, Technology and Sports Law, will take place via zoom, and is free to all.
