You may have noticed that I've changed the name of his blog from "PIPEDA and Canadian Privacy Law" to "The Canadian Privacy Law Blog." When I started it in January 2004, this blog was almost entirely about the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Since then, it has morphed into a broader presentation of privacy law and issues with a privacy angle.
I started thinking about this after reading that only 8% of Canadians are aware of PIPEDA and surely fewer of my readers from outside of Canada have a clue what PIPEDA means.
In the coming weeks, I'm planning to move from blogspot.com over my own domain, privacylawyer.ca. I just have to figure out how to do it without causing too many problems for existing readers. I'll try to give as much notice as possible.
