A year ago, we asked a law student at the University of Ottawa to examine the virtual world Second Life, and report on what implications this type of environment may have for personal privacy and the protection of personal information.

We have been using Janet Lo’s research inside the Office, as we examine a range of online environments and social networks. We have finally translated her report and have posted it online in HTML.

Enjoy, and we’d be interested to hear your reactions.
