GPS and privacy

A NJ Appellate Court judge has ruled that, under certain circumstances, planting a GPS tracking device in a car does not violate that driver's privacy. This case is about a cheating spouse where both spouses have an ownership interest in the car, so they could be arguing that they are just keeping track of their own car.

While the long-term implications of the ruling may still take some time to play out, the media attention this case has gotten this week, added to the recent iPhone privacy issues, is another demonstration of the level of interest people have in the link between GPS and privacy
