Dear members of BestBits list,
I'm not sure if you know about this, but the new mayor of São Paulo
(João Dória) wants to change the rules of the public policy that
sustains open and free Wi-Fi access in squares and public spaces. His
plan is to monetize over the metadata and personal data of those
citizens that access the "open wifi". The plan has been heavily
critized by digital rights activists (see here and here). Now the
City Hall has opened a public consultation about the rules of the
partnership with the private sector.
We need urgently some good examples of other cities that implemented
partnerships with the private sector and respected privacy and
personal data protection.
If you have some materials (official documents or papers that
explains the personal data protection policies in such open wi-fi
initiatives), can you please send me?
Thanks for your attention.
