Title in English: The right to the privacy
This collection includes fifteen essays dealing with the issue of the right to privacy. The authors attempt to analyze in legal terms those situations when our comfort and well-being comes at a fairly high cost: We are monitored by surveillance cameras, we leave a trace of which websites we have visited while browsing the internet, our mobile phones allow continuous signal tracking, databases of personal information are being created, satellites keep track of our car’s location, we subject our bodies to security screening, and so on. Moreover, it is not the state who is primarily responsible for these examples of encroachment upon our privacy; rather, it is private companies. The authors in this volume, including judges, lawyers and legal scholars, therefore focus their attention on issues such as wiretap disclosure, internet privacy, constraints on media functioning, and violations of privacy due to GPS tracking. Because the issue of privacy protection is still very much alive and concerns the whole of society, the collection will be useful and illuminating both for lawyers and wide public.
