COs RIGHT TO PERSONAL PRIVACY

The United States (US) Supreme Court (SC) said that companies have no right to personal privacy.
In a ruling that contains an extended discussion of the exact meaning of the word 'personal', the US Court ruled that only individuals can have such a right, not companies or other similar bodies.
A right to privacy petition, filed by Ratan Tata, group chairman Tata Sons, is currently pending
in the Indian Supreme Court. The petition argues that his right to privacy was violated by the leaking
of taped conversations he had with lobbyist Niira Radia. AT & T had argued that the release of documents violated its 'personal privacy'.
