The Right of Privacy in the Computer Age

Front Cover
Quorum Books, 1987 - Political Science - 163 pages

As confidential information relating to the lives of millions of citizens continues to be stored in data banks and other electronic systems, Americans are becoming increasingly aware of potential and actual infringements of their right of privacy. What is less apparent, however, is precisely what this right consists of and how it may be protected. In his clear and straightforward exposition of the subject, Warren Freedman delineates the substance and parameters of the right of privacy, the practices that violate it, and available judicial remedies, incorporating practically oriented commentary on applicable case law. Written by an experienced legal professional, this book offers guidance on a timely and complex subject using a minimum of complex language.
