PANELISTS CONSIDERED SUCH QUESTIONS AS:
When is other's speech about you (in the tabloids, on Facebook, etc.) a violation of your privacy?
Should you be legally entitled to force others to not speak about you?
What is the value of transparency and what is the value of anonymity?
Would mandatory disclosure of a person's political contributions impinge on his freedom of speech? Or chill his likelihood to speak?
Does protection of individuals' privacy sometimes work against the public good?
Does the right to privacy inhibit freedom of the press?
