Privacy Rights

by admin last modified 2006-11-05 09:08 AM

Visit the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse for comprehensive information on many of your privacy rights.

One fundamental privacy right is the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches. An excellent overview of the subject is here and application of the Fourth Amendment specifically to home inspections is explained further here.

A troubling trend made possible by progress in electronic technology is the increased use of hidden cameras. These are now found in a variety of places including schools. Regarding school use, issues understandably arise when the cameras are used in places where privacy is invaded, such as bathrooms, a nurse's station or even a principal's shower. Many states are now passing laws prohibiting one particularly offensive use of hidden cameras that invades privacy--the practice of upskirting.
