Invited Papers on Privacy: Law, Ethics, and Technology.
American Federation of Information Processing Societies, Montvale, NJ.; American Bar Association, Washington, DC.
These four papers were presented as background at a national symposium exploring the relationships among law, ethics, and technology as they relate to the individual's informational privacy. George B. Trubow's "The Development and Status of 'Informational Privacy' Law and Policy in the United States" discusses privacy as it relates to the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information. Trubow covers relevant common law and court decisions, fair informational practices, federal and state privacy laws, and eight questions about privacy that need resolution. Alfred R. Louch's "Morality and Privacy" ponders the philosophical, social, and moral bases of the concept of privacy. Fred W. Weingarten's "Information Technology and Privacy Trends in Products and Services" surveys likely developments in information technology over the next decade that will probably affect individual privacy. Weingarten identifies more than 14 trends in technological developments and in their effects at the individual level, at home, at work, and in broader social services. Finally, in "A Taxonomy for Privacy," Willis H. Ware proposes a framework within which to consider privacy litigation and legislation. Ware discusses the concepts of physical, visual, aural, and recordkeeping space and suggests defining "invasions" of these spaces rather than defining privacy itself. (Author/RW)
