North American Regional Forum (Lead)
Technology Law Committee


Two of the global fundamental rights are privacy and freedom of expression. The ability of the law to keep pace with technological developments is being challenged. Years ago, an invasion of privacy that appeared in print in a local area could be more easily contained and remedied than today, when a violation of one’s privacy can go “viral” and circulate for years on the Internet. Similarly, the ability of people to comment without fear of retribution has been compromised, as technology has facilitated what many call the “cancel culture.” These issues are playing out daily in North America. This panel looks at the impact of technology and the stress on traditional legal theories to protect these rights in the digital world.
