Dead or as good as dead.’ Not so long ago articles and essays on privacy often started with a statement like this one. Unfortunately, those announcing the end of privacy often did not indicate what exactly was going on. Is our privacy indeed coming to an end? Can we no longer hide things from the eyes of our all-seeing neighbors, companies, and public bodies? Or perhaps nobody, including pro-privacy advocates, is really convinced of the value of privacy? As far as the recognition of the importance of privacy is concerned, there seems to be no justification for pessimism. In spite of the prognosed lack of vitality, privacy presently leads a remarkably lively existence in newspaper opinion columns and in public debate.
