Bill Birnbauer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Do footballers and other sports stars have a right to privacy in their non-playing activities? Does the public need to know that a player was involved in a minor car accident? What about a fight at a night club? Where should media draw the line between what is in the public interest and an individual's right to privacy?
