Privacy and Property? Multi-level Strategies for Protecting Interests in Genetic Material

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

The paper builds on earlier medico-legal work by Laurie on privacy in relation to genetic material. In this chapter, the author discusses not only Laurie's views as 'pro-privacy' but the limitations of privacy, particularly once information, genetic or otherwise, enters a public sphere. The article draws on cases and laws in the UK, continental Europe, and the US, to provide a comparative view in suggesting an alternative approach to privacy.
