Glass houses: the end of privacy
As we enter the 21 st Century, individuals are faced with an enormous threat to privacy that affects almost every human being. Due to technological advances, virtually everyone will be influenced by the course that is set over the next few years concerning the dissemination of private information. The revolution of information technology resembles the Industrial Revolution in that parameters·are largely unknown and unregulated. In addition, the self-regulation of business presents a similar conflict between profit and public protection. Privacy guidelines that the legislature, judiciary, and industry establish in the early part of this century will affect humanity as the advent of labor laws did in the 20th Century. In this work, the threat to privacy, the problems associated with the control of information transfer, and the comprehensive European Union approach will be examined.
