Turow Discusses Privacy With Dan Rather

Professor Joseph Turow appeared on the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, December 2, 2003, commenting on privacy issues of phone cameras. Referring to a man who travels the city of Philadelphia taking pictures with his cell phone and then posting them on the web, Professor Turow said, "He has s a right to document his life, in my opinion, but he doesn't have a right to document other people's lives unless they want him to." Turow notes that the new camera phones are so small and easy to use that Turow says they may make it too easy for people to spy on one another. "Private detectives and jerks have always done this type of thing," says Turow. "This is just a new toy that can be placed in the hands of virtually everybody."
