Answer any two of the following three questions. You are free to consult any of the assigned or supplementary reading material from the course that is posted to Learn. Each response should be at least two pages long and no more than three pages long (double spaced Times New Roman 12-point font). Doing well on this assignment is not simply a matter of getting the answer right or wrong but about putting together a response that is organized and well-written. Use full paragraphs and do not use point form or bullet lists. Make specific reference to ideas or arguments in the readings and use in-text citations (e.g., Bennett, 2008) including page numbers if necessary (e.g., Levin, 2005: 32). The questions are interrelated so it is possible that some specific ideas or examples may be useful for more than one question, however the questions are distinct enough that there should not be extensive overlap amongst your responses. You are free to discuss the assignment with others, but you must submit your own responses. A bibliography is not required. Include the question number (not the whole question) at the beginning of each response and begin each response on a new page. Package your responses together in a single document (Word, Pages, or PDF) and upload your document to the dropbox on Learn for Small Assignment #3 no later that 5pm on Friday, Nov. 27th. Once submitted, have a good (but distant) weekend. —

2) The GDPR has been described as being ‘extra-territorial’ in effect. Explain what this effect is and the specific elements of EU privacy law (current and historically) that drive this effect. Describe how the approach taken by Canada to maintain equivalency with EU privacy regulations differs from that taken by the USA, and describe the current status of this equivalency in each both countries to the extent that it has been discussed in this course.

3) Burkell (2017) makes a series of arguments about the nature of surveillance today that make it difficult to imagine a return to anything akin to Levin’s ‘golden age of privacy,’ yet she is optimistic that we are nevertheless in the midst of redefining privacy for a new age in which the ‘right to be forgotten’ will be central. Summarize the key elements of Burkell’s arguments regarding surveillance today and the right to be forgotten. If Burkell is correct, what does this mean for the business model of surveillance capitalism as it has evolved in the last 15 years, and what considerations will future digital innovators need to take into account if they are to be successful?
