I'm a law student working on a paper regarding the Fourth Amendment, privacy, and cyberspace. There's quite a debate as to whether there can truly be any privacy in cyberspace. It provides a public forum where people meet and exchange ideas. To communicate in cyberspace you have to be connected through channels operated by 3rd parties and thus subject to monitoring. Plus, computers connected to the internet are subject to vulnerability due to advances hackers make each day cracking security. Given these factors, can anyone in cyberspace really believe any is any privacy when connected to a virtual space? I'd be interested in anyone's opinion as to what should be the measure of a person's subjective expectation of privacy in cyberspace.
