9780847688005: Privacy and Rights to the Visual: The Internet Debate (Philosophy and the Global Context)

The internet has become an integral part of modern life, in the classroom, the office, and the home. But as cyberspace grows to include more and more material, we are faced with tackling new challenges to freedom of speech and the right to privacy. In this important and timely book, Jacques N. Catudal examines the evolution of a legal right to privacy in the United States, and discusses the ways in which privacy legislation affects internet use. Among the topics Catudal discusses are whether there can be such things as a right to isolation and a right to secrecy, recent federal privacy laws and pending legislation specifically addressing computer use, the relation of pornography to privacy, experiencing the visually remarkable, and the right to represent cultural treasures in a medium such as the World Wide Web. Highly readable and relevant, Privacy and Rights to the Visual will be of great interest to students and scholars of social and political philosophy and law, as well as all educated readers for whom the internet is a source of information and entertainment.
