Danielle Keats Citron on the right to 'intimate privacy'

Danielle Keats Citron’s new book, “The Fight for Privacy: Protecting Dignity, Identity and Love in Our Digital Age,” came out in September and explores how the rise of mass data collection exploits the most intimate details of everyone’s private lives.
