Canada-U.S.-Mexico Plan Raises IP, Spam and Privacy Issues

Michael Geist has some things to say about the recent Security and Prosperity Partnership for North America, and notes that there are some privacy aspects worth following:


"...Second, the plan calls for the establishment of a formal process for consultation on issues related to the protection of personal information and trans-border data flows, consistent with privacy goals, the needs of legitimate private and public sector business as well as the protection of public safety and national security. If this does indeed result in a formal process, this issue has some potential given the growing concern associated with U.S. law enforcement access to Canadian data and related outsourcing issues."
