Privacy Goes Global: An Interview With Tim Harty

In the United States, we’ve been talking about privacy for at least a century. In December 1890, the Harvard Law Review published The Right to Privacy, by Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis (who later became Justice Brandeis of the U.S. Supreme Court).

The pathbreaking article, rightly described as “one of the most influential essays in the history of American law,” is generally regarded as the first American publication to advocate a right to privacy, described by the authors as a “right to be let alone.”
