Freedom of expression is a fundamental right at the heart of any democratic society. It is, however, inevitably restricted by other important values, including the right to privacy: the control individuals exercise over their sensitive personal information. The English law, since the enactment of the Human Rights Act 1998, has undergone a tectonic shift in its recognition of this right protected by Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) which the Act assimilated into domestic law. The new civil wrong, 'misuse of private information,' now affords greater protection to an individual's 'private and family life, home and correspondence.' The press is, of course, no longer the principal purveyor of news and information. The Internet offers abundant opportunities for the dissemination of news and opinions, including the publication of intimate, private facts. Social media, blogs, and other online sites are accessible to all. Indeed, the fragility of privacy online has led some to conclude that it is no longer capable of legal protection. This book examines the right of privacy from a legal, philosophical, and social perspective, tracing its genesis in the United States, through the development of the law of confidence, and its recent recognition by the Human Rights Act. The English courts have boldly sought to offer refuge from an increasingly intrusive media. Recent years have witnessed a deluge of civil suits by celebrities seeking to salvage what remains of their privacy. An extensive body of case law has appeared in many common law jurisdictions over the last decade, which shows no sign of abating. The Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practices, and ethics of the press, sparked by the hacking of telephones by newspapers, revealed a greater degree of media intrusion than was previously evident. Its conclusions and recommendations, particularly regarding the regulation of the media, are examined, as well as the various remedies available to victims of intrusion and unsolicited publicity. The law is locked in a struggle to reconcile privacy and free speech, in the face of relentless advances in technology. The manner in which courts in various jurisdictions have attempted to resolve this conflict is critically investigated, and the prospects for the protection of privacy are considered.

La 4e de couverture indique : "India is credited with having one of the finest democratic constitutions in the world. And rightly so. For, even though the Indian Constitution has undergone many amendments and has been subjected to a lot of criticism, it has stood the test of time and has emerged as the beacon of hope, ensuring liberty, equality and justice to the citizens. It is in this context this comprehensive and systemically organized book on Fundamental Rights and Their Enforcement, written by Prof. Udai Raj Rai, an eminent academic with great legal acumen, becomes so significant. The book is a study on the fundamental rights guaranteed under Part III of the Constitution. Divided into 15 chapters aEUR" each chapter is again divided into parts aEUR" the book discusses in detail Liberty-based rights such as right to freedom of expression and other article 19 rights; life and personal liberty; preventive detention, capital punishment and prisoneraEUR s rights; and freedom of religion. Then it goes on to give an in-depth analysis of Equality-based rights aEUR" equality before law; non-discrimination and equal opportunity; social reservation; Liberty and Equality-based-rights aEUR" social equality and right to education as well as minority rights to establish and administer educational institutions. The book concludes with a comprehensive coverage on reach of fundamental rights; its violation; enforcement of the rights; Directive Principles of State Policy; and the fundamental duties of citizens. The book being a juridical study, the emphasis throughout is on analytical and critical study of important Supreme Court judgments. So, such major judgments as A.K. Gopalan and Maneka are highlighted. The distinction between pre-Maneka and post-Maneka jurisprudence is also clearly brought out. Besides, there is an elaborate discussion on the right to information, special problems regarding media freedom, and the Law of Contempt of Court which, the author feels, needs amendment. This well-balanced and well-researched book is intended as a text for postgraduate students of law (LL.M.) and as a reference for undergraduate students of law (LL.B., BA LL.B.). It should also serve as a valuable reference to lawyers, judges, and the teaching community. KEY FEATURES : Gives an analytical and critical study of Supreme Court judgments in relation to fundamental rights. Highlights the need for testing the laws on the touchstone of Secularism. Shows the need for balancing the StateaEUR s regulatory power and educational rights of the minorities. Gives recent Supreme Court decisions in the Addenda at the end of the book"
