Full-Time Faculty 

 
  • Professor Heidi Anderson
 
The University of Florida Levin College of Law has invited Professor Anderson to present her work-in-progress, The Mythical Right to Obscurity, at an upcoming faculty workshop.  In the article, Professor Anderson argues that demands for additional restrictions on the flow of truthful, public information in the interest of protecting privacy are misplaced because they overstate perceived privacy harms and understate the potential benefits of the increased information flow.  Ultimately, Prof. Anderson argues, scholars calling for additional privacy-related legal restrictions confuse the right to privacy, which exists, with the right to obscurity, which does not.
