    The internet age presents serious substantive challenges to protecting informational privacy rights and the dignitary interests protected by the law of defamation. This program explores common law, statutory, and comparative perspectives on the possibility of civil recovery for harmful privacy invasions and defamatory communications via the internet. Is the internet, the predominate modern medium of communication, an instantaneous, universal, and permanent informational forum, the natural foe of personal privacy rights and human dignity? We discuss this broad question and its application to specific "thorny" issues with a panel of distinguished privacy scholars.
