Publication Of Personal Information: What Are Your Legal Obligations?

The right to publish personal information, and legal obligations attendant thereto, is a global topic of discussion involving ethics and evolving legal mandates. Whether any such information, including photographs, is to be published on a public website, or in handouts to a select group of recipients, there are now legal implications not contemplated twenty years ago. In Canada, thoughtful analysis of copyright, privacy law, and the duty of care are among the considerations that schools, businesses, and governmental entities should undertake before publishing personal information of students or employees.
