Bioinformatics and Privacy

Краткое описание

To understand the moral harms invasion of privacy can produce, it is helpful to look at tort law where in response to particular cases of claims of invasion over the past 110 years, four different kinds of privacy harms have arisen: intrusion, disclosure, false light, and appropriation. These four privacy torts parallel four different moral harms that can occur through invasion of privacy, and of these four, intrusion and disclosure are of particular concern to bioinformatics and, in particular, to the creation of databases of biological information. We can think of the creation of these four different harms as sort of an open source development.
