Abstract

Recent revelations of celebrity ‘super-injunctions’ have reopened the debate on privacy and celebrity in the UK. Bart Cammaerts finds that those who live in the limelight often have the greatest resources, compared to ‘ordinary’ citizens to protect their own privacy when the media uncovers stories they would prefer to be kept secret. A new, considered, privacy law might go some way towards redressing this imbalance.
