This piece focuses on the proliferation of social media platforms and how this has given a renewed legal focus on privacy. As the authors (Robert D. Keeling and Ray Mangum) explain, “most of that focus has centered on data collection, storage, sharing, and, in particular, third-party transactions in which customer information is harnessed for advertising purposes.” But they both ask the important question, which I myself often ask, which is; what about other contexts?

This is a useful and insightful read in which the authors argue that privacy should be considered a burden under Rule 26(b). Some really insightful points about proportionality and privacy concerns here.
