European and International Media Law

Oxford University Press

Chapter Eleven concerns the regulation of personal data processing as a fetter on the liberty to publish. As this Chapter discusses, in Europe, the human right to respect for privacy, and its special relationship with the right to freedom of expression, provides the foundation for data protection regulation. The Chapter looks at the application of the EU Data Protection Directive to the media, including the journalistic purposes exception as well as the entrenchment of the right to protection of personal data in major EU treaties. It also examines various methods used to ensure that personal data sourced in Europe remains subject to the Directive's standards. Chapter Eleven then discusses the origins of European data protection rules in the Council of Europe. It finally examines the array of international initiatives aimed at the development of common global principles and equivalent practices for data protection, while preserving the international flow of data.
