Technology has had a great influence on the legal system, particularly the right to privacy. This book explains how individual rights are being challenged in cyberspace, through digital media, and the pursuit of national security. Readers are introduced to topics such as what rights the Constitution protects in general and questions how the rules have been tested with regard to technology, such as expectations of privacy online. Digital media are also studied with regards to copyright laws, freedom of Internet speech, and cyberbullying. Regarding the subject of privacy in the electronic age, this book poses questions such as what is the right balance between security and privacy regarding surveillance, how much personal information can Web sites collect on individuals, and how much personal information be stored on third-party servers. Finally, the appendix includes a copy of the Bill of Rights so readers can better understand the rights of American citizens in this new technological landscape.
