The "right to privacy": a Japanese perspective

Onishi, Hiroko (2011) The "right to privacy": a Japanese perspective. Communications Law, 16(2), pp. 70-78. ISSN (print) 1746-7616


Explores how the "right to privacy" has been interpreted and protected in Japan. Looks at the European Court of Human Rights approach to the right to privacy, the UK's expansion of breach of confidence with regard to private information, and the Japanese jurisdiction and jurisprudence on the right to privacy, including its constitutional status and the right as a moral right, right not to be portrayed, and economic right. Considers whether English law could learn from Japan's right to privacy.
