Privacy sans frontières @ The University of Notre Dame in London
Nov 10 @ 18:00 – 20:00

Flyer – Privacy sans frontiere 10 November 2014 (PDF)

Privacy, Confidentiality and Data Protection are three causes of action frequently used in battles to prevent publication of information, whether in the form of pictures or text.

Recent cases have reinforced the necessity to plan cross-border strategies when dealing with these breaches in the digital age and to bear in mind the potential PR pitfalls faced by individuals and companies seeking to suppress publication. We will discuss some of these cases, such as:

  • the so-called “Right To Be Forgotten” on Google;
  • Paul Weller’s use of privacy laws after publication of paparazzi photos of his children;
  • Adele’s use of the Data Protection Act to restrain publication of pictures of her son;
  • international publication  of  pictures  of  the  Duchess  of  Cambridge’s  bare  bottom,  following previous publication of pictures of her topless, and pictures of Prince Harry naked;
  • publication of  pictures  of  François  Hollande  visiting  his  mistress,  and  Valérie  Trierweiler’s publication of her explosive memoirs;
  • the end of the super injunction? Trafigura;
  • Injunctions “defeated” by Twitter and MPs – Ryan Giggs, Sir Fred Goodwin;
  • Celebrity nude pictures hacking and anti-revenge porn laws in the

Our panel of experts will discuss the different perspectives of English and French laws and explore practical issues – from the perspective of companies trying to protect their corporate reputations and that of their executives – and of individuals in the public eye trying to keep their and their families’ lives private. They will also examine the parallel reality of the symbiotic relationship between corporate PR and celebrities and the media and their seemingly contradictory efforts to exploit the law to control the media and the information they convey.

PANEL

Christian Curtil, Partner at Curtil Law, Paris;

Lucy Moorman, Partner at Simons Muirhead & Burton, London;

Stephen Abell, Managing Editor, The Sun Newspaper.

The event will be chaired by Sir Michael Tugendhat, former judge and President of the Franco-British Lawyers Society.

REGISTRATION
