MCLE Self-Study Article: What Is Privacy in the Information Age?
By Mari Frank, Esq. CIPP
âScience and Privacy: together they constitute twin conditions of freedom in the twentieth centuryâ
– Dr. Alan Westin, (1929 â 2013) Professor of law Columbia University, Author, Privacy and Freedom, publisher, Privacy & American Business
Privacy law in the electronic age is rapidly transforming and at the same time our privacy is diminishing. Historically, the development of California privacy law derives originally from the Declaration of Independence when Thomas Jefferson wrote: âWe declare these truths to be self-evident – that all men are endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights: that among these are the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.â Without privacy we have no liberty.
