ASNE joins amicus brief regarding automatic license plate readers

 
ASNE was one of 13 organizations that joined an amicus brief filed with the California Supreme Court in a case involving access to information collected via automatic license plate readers (ALPR) in Los Angeles County. The brief, drafted by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, does not address the privacy and surveillance issues surrounding the use of ALPRs; it simply argues that the California Supreme Court should overturn the decision of an intermediate Court of Appeals that the law enforcement exemption to the state's Public Records Act can be used to withhold all data collected by ALPRs.

Media organizations urge Canada to reject 'right to be forgotten'

 
ASNE is one of nine media organizations that filed comments drafted by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press with the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, as that country considers adoption of the controversial "right to be forgotten" that has taken hold in Europe.
