ACLU-Tennessee Holds Online Privacy Discussions

Nashville, Tenn (AP/WMOT) Online privacy is the subject this week as the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee conducts a series of panel discussions statewide.

ACLU representatives will speak today in Knoxville, tomorrow here in Middle Tennessee and Wednesday in Memphis.

In a news release, the ACLU contends the laws that protect our privacy have not kept pace with social and technological change.

The group is launching what it calls the "dotRights" campaign, with the goal of requiring government to observe the same restrictions on access to personal information online as they do offline.

Tomorrow’s meeting here in Middle Tenn. will be held at Watkins College of Art on Rosa L. Parks Boulevard in Nashville.
