The fourth edition of the popular Privacy Law Fundamentals text incorporates extensive developments in privacy law and includes an introductory chapter summarizing key new laws, cases and enforcement actions.

Privacy Law Fundamentals is no treatise—its accessible, portable format delivers vital information in a concise and digestible manner. It includes key provisions of privacy statutes; leading cases; tables summarizing the statutes (private rights of action, preemption, liquidated damages, etc.); summaries of key state privacy laws; an overview of FTC enforcement actions; and answers to frequently asked questions, including:

  • What are the new developments at the FTC and FCC?
  • What will the EU's General Data Protection Regulation and the Privacy Shield mean for U.S. companies?
  • What recent changes have occurred in the area of data security law?
