and Internet Commerce
Vancouver, B.C. February 11, 1998 - Vancouver lawyer Gary Dunn is to be interviewed by CBC Radio, Early Edition on Thursday February 12, 1998 as the part in their series looking at electronic commerce on the Internet.
Canadians have come to expect a high degree of privacy as a cornerstone of a free society. With information technology, Canadians are seeing a huge shift in data that is being collected in the private sector. While the public sector has a degree of regulation, the public sector has virtually no safeguards.
As Dunn explains, "Privacy, along with on-line security, is essential for electronic commerce to flourish. With the exponential growth in data collection, Canadians are becoming increasingly concerned about data mining, database matching, and the collection of information from children using deceptive practices. The exercise is to find the right balance between businesses' desire to collect information with the rights of individuals."
Gary Dunn's Vancouver based legal

extensive legal experience with the legal aspects of the Internet. He is the also the
