Privacy and propriety

Abstract:

This chapter focuses on the issues of privacy and defamation, particularly as they relate to unpublished work disseminated through an institutional repository. Repository managers must take steps to ensure that content in the repository does not violate an individual’s privacy rights, nor harm their reputation. General privacy rights are discussed, along with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The chapter concludes with an examination of the potential risks and liability related to defamatory content.
