Their concerns were more about the loss of their handset - most did not think their mobile was technically advanced enough to pose a threat to their personal information People do not read privacy statement From 40% on regular PC to 19% on mobile devices (screen sizePage 9

Mobile Media Privacy: Actors Application developers and development ...simple functionality up front, while in the background, they send the identification number of the device, the personal whereabouts of the user, or even the contact details of friends, colleagues and customers to a server somewhere in the internet A study from the University of California in Santa Barbara (US) concluded that among 825 examined apps for the iPhone and its operating system iOS, 21 percent forward the ID number, four percent the current position, and 0.5 percent even copy the address book Jiangs team found that 48,139 of the apps (1 in 2.1) had ad libraries that track a users location via GPS, presumably to allow an ad library to better target ads to the user. However, 4,190 apps (1 in 23.4) used ad libraries that also allowed advertisers themselves to access a users location via GPS. Other information accessed by some ad libraries included call logs, user phone numbers and lists of all the apps a user has stored on his or her phone it was discovered that iPhone apps Path and Hipster were uploading user address book information without informed consent Meanwhile Twitter was criticised because its privacy policy failed to explain that if users used the Find Friends feature on its iOS and Android clients Twitter would store the users entire address book for 18 months.Page 12

  • 15. Mobile Media: The law Legal basis for free speech in the UK The UK is known around the world for its respect for and tolerance of free speech. Although free speech has long been recognised as a common law right in Britain, it also has a statutory basis in Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (the "Convention"), which has been incorporated into UK law by the Human Rights Act 1998. In fact, Article 10 of the Convention goes beyond free "speech" and guarantees freedom of "expression," which includes not only the spoken word, but written material, images and other published or broadcast material. When, however, you begin to consider the possible range of expression --including, say, hate speech that incites violence -- it becomes apparent that even a tolerant society has to put some limits on freedom of expression. Therefore, much of the law relating to free speech is concerned with trying to strike the right balance between freedom of expression and the use (or abuse) of that freedom in a way that harms society. Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights itself recognises the need for some limits on free expression. It provides, however, that limits can only be imposed in order to achieve certain specified aims. The Convention lists several permitted reasons for limiting free speech, including national security, the protection of health or morals, and protection of peoples rights and reputations.Page 15
