The Fight for Privacy: Protecting Dignity, Identity, and Love in the Digital Age

 Author: Danielle Keats Citron  Category: Big Data, Civil Liberties, Privacy, Privacy Law, Surveillance  Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company  Published: 2022  ISBN: 978-0393882315  Pages: 320

Danielle Keats Citron takes the conversation about technology and privacy out of the boardrooms and op-eds to reach readers where we are—in bathrooms and bedrooms, with our families and our lovers, in the parts of our lives we assume are untouchable—and shows us that privacy, as we think we know it, is largely already gone.

From nonconsensual pornography to online extortion, to the sale of our data for profit, we are vulnerable to abuse. As Citron reveals, wherever we live, laws have failed miserably to keep up with corporate or individual violators, letting our privacy wash out with the technological tide. With vivid examples drawn from interviews with victims, activists, and lawmakers from around the world, The Fight for Privacy argues urgently and forcefully for a reassessment of privacy as a human right. And, as a legal scholar and expert, Citron is the perfect person to show us the way to a happier, better protected future.
