The ongoing fight for online privacy reached new heights recently when the United Nations announced that it will appoint a privacy expert to oversee a range of online privacy issues. The announcement, which was released on March 26, came as a result from a strong push by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff for greater user protection online.
