Invasion of privacy
is one of the most subjective and nebulous areas of the law affecting newspapers.
It covers conduct at both the news-gathering and editorial stages of publication
and may also affect use of photographs and illustrations. In broadest terms,
the right of privacy includes the "right to be left alone," the right to
be portrayed to the public in an accurate light, and the right to control
the use of one's name and likeness by others.
