Abstract

In the aftermath of Douglas v. Hello! Ltd., in which pictures surreptitiously taken of a New York wedding were published in a United Kingdom magazine, it is becoming increasingly apparent that privacy invasions are not restricted by national borders. The equitable doctrine of breach of confidence, which gave a remedy in that case, has shown adaptability in the face of changing circumstances and practices. The challenge for the future will be ensuring greater international harmonisation of substantive legal protection of privacy. Already there are some positive signs.
