“This issue looks into the rapidly evolving issues related to mobile technologies, such as privacy, transparency and the use of personal data,” said Lucy L. Thomson, chair of the Section of Science & Technology Law. “More Americans than ever use their mobile devices to share information, and privacy protections and the law must keep pace with the use of new technologies.”
The summer special issue is a collection of seven articles and sidebars written by some of the country’s foremost futurists, mobile privacy experts and technology lawyers, who are available to media outlets seeking sources. Experts and their articles include:
- “Mobile Marketing Complicates Legal Compliance” by William B. Baker;
