Should governments do more to protect online privacy?

The Economist magazine is hosting an online debate on whether governments should do more to protect online privacy. The series can be found through this blog entry. Marc Rotenberg, President and Executive Director of Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) is squaring off against Jim Harper, Director of Information Policy Studies at the Cato Institute. Today, Jules Polonetsky, Co-Chair and Director of the Future of Privacy Forum (the privacy think tank that I founded and now co-chair with Jules) made a contribution to the debate, which is excerpted in this entry.
