Abstract

Considers the choices to be made by Scots law if it is to give adequate protection to privacy as required by Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Should it adapt the law of confidential information (borrowed from English law) or the civilian actio iniuriarum? Recent case law is reviewed and some unanswered questions considered.
