The concept of privacy was proposed for the first time by American scholars announced " The Right to Privacy" http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/classes/6.805/articles/privacy/Priv... at "Harvard Law Review"in 1890, who are Brandeis and Warren. This paper they distinguished the right to privacy from copyright.

It's very interesting that we have to deal with the relationship between them again.In some european countries, they have carried out some kind of copyright enforcement to require ISP to monitor the online behavior of the anonymous users, especially force intermediaries to disclose the identities of their customers to IP rightsholders on an allegation of copyright infringement. https://gc.eff.org/about .

In another word, privacy has to give way to copyright?

Privacy is owned by individuals while a great deal of copyright belongs to some big company and some strong organizations.To balance the power between them, we have to act together to fight for our right to privacy!

I fear, Hui, that we have a generation of young people who don't fully understand the importance of privacy. They've grown up in a social networking world where everything is out there and available. From tweets to Facebook updates, from Linked In histories to Internet dating profiles, their lives are open books for anyone who cares to read. If we take this as a given, then I'm not surprised that copyright has to be enforced and that we need to be reminded that ownership is an issue.
