They Know Where You Are: Location Privacy in a Mobile World

Tuesday, March 10, 12:30 pm
Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street, second floor
RSVP required (rsvp@cyber.law.harvard.edu)
This event will be webcast live at 12:30 pm ET.

Your mobile phone is a tracking device, and they know where you are, where you've been, and easily can figure out where you are going.  They are the government, and they don't believe probable cause need be shown to track you. But "they" increasing include civil litigants and private application providers, and there are few standards for tracking on the civil side.  This is Mobility Law 101.
