Washington Law Review


In this article, the authors do not propose to discuss the innumerable ways in which one's privacy is invaded or to survey the entire sweep of the law of privacy, but rather attempt to trace briefly its development, with particular emphasis on how the law has affected the mass media since the Supreme Court decided its first privacy case, Time, Inc. v. Hill, in 1967. In so doing, we hope to add somewhat to the understanding of this unsettled area of law.
