Information Privacy 2 Gaining access to Justin’s email is an evasion of his personal privacy! Information privacy, how important is it? In the case of Justin Ellsworth, my opinion is that it is morally wrong for his parents to have fought and gained access to Justin’s email after his death. For instance, as you examine the word Privacy, by definition; it is the interest that individuals have in sustaining a ‘personal space’ free from interference by others… moreover freedom from the observation, intrusion, or attention of others. Therefore not only was this morally wrong, in this case, but also legally wrong as well! Given his background, a Marine killed in action while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces during combat operations in Afghanistan, he deserved better than that. Besides, he was no longer a minor or under the supervision of his parents, he was a young Marine who as an adult should not have had to go through this unfortunate invasion of privacy. Clearly email use is protected by the provider for reasons of personal privacy and is guarded in secrecy from all individuals no matter the request to disclose, even when love ones feel they have a need to know! Personal privacy is something that under all situations should not be violated.
