In addition to covering federal regulatory regimes, it explores the full range of constitutional and state privacy tort doctrines. It has been updated to include human rights and EU developments and expose readers to recent debates over cloud computing, social marketing, and the role of the Federal Trade Commission. Chapter 1 of the textbook focuses on the four common law invasion of privacy torts, plus the publicity tort and breach of confidentiality. Chapter 2 focuses on constitutional law, with special attention to the First, Fourth and 14th Amendments. Chapter 3 includes cases and materials that lay out federal information policy, including fair information practice standards reflected in the Privacy Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Family Education and Right to Privacy Act, The Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act, HIPPA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and many others. Chapter 4 takes up communications privacy and federal approaches to the regulation of intelligence, law enforcement and private surveillance. All of this is accomplished with considerable attention to the ethical, social and policy foundations of the field.
