Who's Watching You? Who isn't?

Ted Koppel surveys (about half of) the legal, technological and economic threats to our privacy. Most of them have to do with "hackers" taking unauthorized control of information, but frankly, I'm more than a little nervous about corporate information sharing and the increased scope of contract law (i.e. conditions of employment) to limit rights on and off the job, limit private and "fair use" space, etc.

There's all kinds of ways this could go bad.
