Privacy, Control, and Talk of Rights: R. G. FREY

Social Philosophy and Policy 17 (2):45-67 (2000)

Abstract
An alleged moral right to informational privacy assumes that we should have control over information about ourselves. What is the philosophical justification for this control? I think that one prevalent answer to this question—an answer that has to do with the justification of negative rights generally—will not do.
