Privacy and celebrity and the photographs that get taken

March 16, 2011 |

Not a bad piece in the SMH today, Privacy, phone cameras and celebrity encounters, about the ubiquitous camera phone intruding on celebrities as they go about their business, including going to the toilet.

Unfortunately it recites the problems and highlights the problems of not having anything even vaguely like a right to privacy.  If anyone can enforce such a right it is well heeled celebrities keen on keeping a private space.  Then again in the US, where there is a right to privacy (in certain circumstances) paparazzi are even more invasive and common than here.
