Famous Players privacy complaint (Joe Clark: Media Access)

I blogged last week about one of the most recent findings of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner related to movie theatres and the information collected when handing out assistive technology for the disabled. (See The Canadian Privacy Law Blog: New finding (#304): Movie theatre chain strengthens personal information handling practices - June 7, 2005). The complainant in this case has outed himself as Joe Clark, an advocate for making movies more accessible. He has put up a webpage devoted to his complaint and his experience here: Famous Players privacy complaint (Joe Clark: Media Access). I'd suggest taking a look at his site to get the complainant's perspective on this one.
