Soumia Landi (2023) Misuse of Private Information: A Legal Analysis of Privacy Precedent in Connection to Media Abuses in England and Wales. The King’s Student Law Review, Vol XIII, Issue II, pp1-21
The courts have favoured freedom of expression as the pillar of democracy, whereas privacy rights have either been heavily neglected or inconsistently upheld, failing to protect the individuals whose privacy is breached. This paper will evaluate the traditional media’s special position in society, owing to its social function and limits. It will contest that the principal tools used by courts to assess misuse of private information claims have accentuated the unjust equilibrium between press freedom and privacy rights. The two-part Campbell test, the rights of third parties, the protection of reputation, legal certainty, and the quality of the remedies available highlight some of the issues created in the attempt to reach a fair outcome in the misuse of private information claims. Lastly, this paper will advocate for the introduction of a general right to privacy in common law and increased regulation of the press to uphold privacy rights.
