Law Commission of New Zealand Issues Paper on Privacy
It is part of a public consultation process the government has asked the Commission to undertake.
The main focus is the adequacy of both New Zealand’s civil law and criminal law to deal with invasions of privacy.
The paper also examines:
- the state of privacy protection in other countries such as the US, the UK, and Australia
- the impact on privacy of the emergence of technologies such as closed circuit TV, GPS, RFID and spyware
