Companies Have Privacy Rights, Too

Share this article:
I find it interesting that an organization called the Electronic Privacy Information Center wants a U.S. government agency to violate the privacy rights of eTour and Ask Jeeves by investigating their marketing practices.


This so-called privacy center should explain why privacy applies only to individuals and not to groups of individuals. Hasn't the whole big-is-bad thing gotten really old?


They should pick up a copy of Ayn Rand's "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal" and get a grip on property rights.
