“Internal evidence of harm has a lot to do with freedom of speech”

“Remember that privacy harm is not only a question of reputation – that’s external harms – but internal harm. if you’re concerned about your reading or watching habits could be watched, you could be chilled. To me, knowing that other people might know, we might say it’s a privacy invasion that could be chilling.

Internal evidence of harm has a lot to do with freedom of speech. If we don’t have a right to read or watch something in a way that can’t be monitored, it goes to free speech.” –Danielle Keats Citron, Professor of Law, University of Maryland School of Law, commenting on an iTunes privacy hole.
