When it comes to a person’s private life, his privacy is the most important part of his/her personal liberty irrespective of his/her being a common man or a public figure. The gravity of issue may vary in both the cases, but the consequences remain the same. Inadequate level of protection coupled with growing popularity of internet gives offenders a lucrative opportunity to play with someone’s private affairs. This leads to loss of personal data and effectively make people believe, like in Jennifer’s case, that nothing can remain private on the net-space. At this stage, we can only suggest that every individual should have the right to control their personal information from reaching to third party and it’s high time that law should come for the rescue. The increase in cyber interface is like a space without limits, which prevents a specific law to be inculcated, and needs to be amended with the latest developments happening in the digital space. It’s high time that jurisdictions regulating trans-border data flows are meticulously drafted to deter such activities. Countries should come up with stringent measures to control activities that are awful and harassing.
