Mosley and the Right to Privacy

The Guardian carried an interesting piece today in their G2 section. The article was an interview with Max Mosley who found himself in court earlier this year taking on the News of the World (and winning!) over a video they had of him engaging in S&M practices. His honesty and forthright response to the allegations was as refreshing as it was unusual to see in a public figure. He is now bring an ECHR challenge to establish a privacy right. He may just succeed and the proposals he puts forward seem both sensible and practical. My favourite line in the interview reads: 'Has he had lots of support and messages from what he calls the S&M "community"? "I've had no interesting offers," he smiles'. You can also listen to the interview here.
