As the internet becomes more ubiquitous and the use of technology continues to rise, the government must start seriously evaluating ways in which it can provide oversight and create effective legislature, that still allows for privacy and freedom of speech. This paper discusses some of the most prominent issues related to that legislators have been looking at in recent history and will be considering even more seriously in the near future. First, privacy and privacy laws in general are briefly discussed. Next issues related to privacy and law enforcement are examined, followed by concerns of consumer data in relation to ad agencies, and finally a discussion about privacy issues related to minors. Privacy will only continue to grow as a concern, especially as issues related to existing privacy law, lack of legislation, and unexpected or unauthorized breaches in privacy by web companies become more prominent in the headlines.
