* Nothing to Hide

Over at SSRN, a great paper for everyone to read showing why you need privacy even if you "have nothing to hide."

Professor Daniel Solove examines the "nothing to hide" argument. When asked about government surveillance and data mining, many people respond by declaring: "I've got nothing to hide." According to the "nothing to hide" argument, there is no threat to privacy unless the government uncovers unlawful activity, in which case a person has no legitimate justification to claim that it remain private. The "nothing to hide" argument and its variants are quite prevalent, and thus are worth addressing.
Print it and hand it to your friends - it may make them think twice about government surveillance on their lives.
