Pavlich on NFL Anthem Protests: Owners, Goodell ‘Don’t Have Any Control’

Trackers collect information on Internet users based on their browsing behavior. Typically, people surfing on the Internet have no idea that they are being tracked, and in fact, unless they actually visit each web site’s privacy page, have little knowledge of the site’s approach to privacy. Many companies involved in tracking are smaller, little known companies, but the two biggest trackers, Google and Microsoft, are household names.

Trackers can learn a variety of personal information about individual users from the movies they like to health issues they may be facing. Trackers use the information they collect to post targeted advertising directed at users based on their browsing habits. There are virtually no limitations on trackers. Companies like Microsoft and Google have the ability and the legal freedom to collect information and use it. Currently, in most cases there is nothing that identifies a specific individual, or that links specific individuals to their browsing habits, but the potential for an individual privacy to be compromised is high.

Most browsers install tracking devices automatically without the knowledge of the consumer. Internet users do have the ability to block trackers by installing certain software, but, doing so could affect their ability to effectively access information on the Internet. Users can also go to the companies that do the tracking and opt out, but this can be difficult and complicated to do. Moreover, there are cases when tracking is helpful and useful to consumers, particularly when a consumer visits the same site on a regular basis. Consumers visiting Amazon.com for example, can find it helpful to have their information tracked. The problems begin however, when the information that is collected is used in less scrupulous ways.

Please watch the video below and respond to the questions. Your posting should be approximately 300 words. Also, respond to at least two of your classmates’ discussion posts. Initial posts are due on Thursday at 1159 pm and responses by Sunday at 1159 pm.

Suppose you are CEO of a company that engages in third party tracking and you are approached by a company looking for information about consumers. In the past, you have always kept such information private, but after two down quarters, an influx of revenue could be a good thing for the company. Is it ethical for you to sell the information you have collected?

Since Colin Kaepernick first took a knee during the National Anthem at an NFL game, several others have joined in. Some of these players state that they are protesting police brutality. Others say they are protesting racial inequality. The controversy has garnered condemnation from many NFL fans and the president. Others say the players have free speech. However, one argument is that players are at work and, therefore, do not necessarily have “free speech.” These protests have impacted the revenues of the NFL and its owners.

View the video below and respond to the questions. Remember to respond/comment on at least two of your classmates’ posts. Initial posts are due on Thursday at 1159 pm and responses by Sunday at 1159 pm.

Do employers have the right to limit free speech or protests while an employee is at work or representing the company in some way? Is the right to free speech absolute? What about others that have tried to use their platform for other issues and have been fined by the NFL (such as specialized cleats)?
