Abstract

This broad-ranging examination of privacy law considers the challenges faced by the law in changing technological, commercial and social environments. The book encompasses three overlapping areas of analysis: privacy protection under the general law; legislative measures for data protection in digital communications networks; and the influence of transnational agreements and other pressures toward harmonised privacy standards. Leading, internationally recognised authors discuss developments across these three areas in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, APEC (the forum for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation), Australia and New Zealand. Chapters draw on doctrinal and historical analysis of case law, theoretical approaches to both freedom of speech and privacy, and the interaction of law and communications technologies, in order to examine present and future challenges to law's engagement with privacy. The table of contents and first chapter are available here.

Keywords: privacy, technology, media, law, data protection, digital, transnational, UK, comparative, US, Europe, APEC, Australia, New Zealand, freedom of speech
