Model Social Media Privacy Legislation To Be Proposed in 2016

The Uniform Law Commission (ULC), a non-profit unincorporated association comprised of state commissions on uniform laws from each state, recently announced that it intends to vote on model social media privacy legislation in 2016. The proposed legislation would seek to bring uniformity and consistency to social media privacy legislation across the states, particularly in those states (currently 27) that have yet to pass such legislation. It would apply both to employer access to employees’ social media account information and to university access to students’ social media account information.

Here is a preview of the ULC’s draft model act.
