Privacy and the constitution
See my public FTC presentations and other writings. Not many things are part of our constitution. The founders thought privacy was integral to our rights under unwritten English law and since it was attacked did not codify it. However, lest you think that makes it lawful to breach privacy review case law and the Federal Register. There are many US laws and agency regulations in force but not often enforced for lack of manpower or interest to prosecute unless overt exposure. This will change. When the impact of MIBs and other inter-corporate info sharing undermines ability of people to land jobs or redlines them in other economic ways, the pressure to enforce and redefine privacy will be forefront.
