There is a thin line between privacy and secrecy, and increasingly only the famous and wealthy can afford to have their privacy protected when it suits them: the UK needs a proper privacy law

By Bart Cammaerts

Abstract

Recent revelations of celebrity ‘super-injunctions’ have reopened the debate on privacy and celebrity in the UK. Bart Cammaerts finds that those who live in the limelight often have the greatest resources, compared to ‘ordinary’ citizens to protect their own privacy when the media uncovers stories they would prefer to be kept secret. A new, considered, privacy law might go some way towards redressing this imbalance
