Policy is a mess.
Dave's got the story of the IRS giving up on location data, Ben has the story of a man wrongfully arrested due to a facial recognition match, and later in the show our conversation with Fred Cate, Vice President for research at Indiana University and author of the book "Bulk Collection: Systematic Government Access to Private-Sector Data."
While this show covers legal topics, and Ben is a lawyer, the views expressed do not constitute legal advice. For official legal advice on any of the topics we cover, please contact your attorney.
