Privacy and Information Rights

Privacy and Information Rights (PDF ebook)

Edited by Healey, Justin

We live in a public age in which the free flow of personal information is increasingly exposed to serious invasions of privacy. Privacy protection is a growing concern in relation to how people use rapidly advancing technology to store and share their personal information with fa...mily, friends, organisations and governments. Many Australians' daily interactions are conveyed by social networking websites and mobile phones, and can involve sharing personal and financial data online, often under the watchful eye of CCTV surveillance - but are our privacy laws and protections keeping pace with technological change? Although people are able to complain about the misuse of their personal information to a national information commissioner, Australian laws do not clearly allow a person to take action against a person or entity that seriously violates their privacy. In light of the British media's recent phone hacking scandal, should people's right to privacy be at the expense of freedom of expression and the freedom of the media to seek out and disseminate information of public interest? Can a balance between these principles be struck? Is anything really private anymore? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index. Titles in the Issues in Society series are individual resource books which provide an overview on a specific subject comprised of facts and opinions. The information in this resource book is not from any single author, publication or organisation. The unique value of the Issues in Society series lies in its diversity of content and perspectives. The content comes from a wide variety of sources and includes: newspaper reports and opinion pieces, website fact sheets, magazine and journal articles, statistics and surveys, government reports, and literature from special interest groups.
