Description of the book

This book begins by examining the nature and scope of the right to privacy and its moral basis and status: What is privacy? What interests does it affect and protect? Is there a justification for the right? Privacy Law in Australia discusses the relevant legal regime in all Australian jurisdictions. It covers the extent to which privacy has been protected under common law and equity and then weaves these principles into the statutory discussion of privacy. It focuses specifically on the most important areas of privacy protection--medical records, communications, criminal investigations and DNA, employment, territory, and do on. Finally, it examines how the law may develop in the future.Doyle, Carolyn is the author of 'Privacy Law in Australia', published 2005 under ISBN 9781862875647 and ISBN 1862875642.
