Professor Brian Ray Appears on WKYC Channel 3 News

Professor Brian Ray appeared on WKYC Channel 3 News commenting on a request by privacy rights organizations that the Federal Trade Commission investigate YouTube for knowingly collecting data from children in violation of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.  He also worked with the Cleveland State Law Review to organize the Blockchain Law & Technology Symposium, which brought over 30 national experts together to discuss blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, ICOs and the legal and regulatory issues they raise.  Ray moderated the closing panel on Diversity in Blockchain, a new national initiative launched last fall at MIT, and organized a workshop the day before the Symposium with Andrea Tinianow, the creator of the Delaware Blockchain Initiative, to discuss organizing a similar state blockchain initiative in Ohio.  Ray was invited to speak on behalf of the CWRU-CSU IoT Collaborative (IoTC) at several recent conferences, including Data Days CLE, where he spoke about data privacy and the recent controversy surrounding Cambridge Analytica’s collection and use of Facebook data, and at an IoTC-sponsored OHTec event discussing the group’s work with industry partners in Northeast Ohio.
