This volume provides a comprehensive analysis of civil liability for invasion of personality interests in Europe. It is the final product of the collaboration of twenty-seven scholars and includes case studies of fourteen European jurisdictions, as well as an introductory chapter from an US perspective. The case studies focus in particular on the legal protection of honour and reputation, privacy, self-determination and image. Following Sacco’s approach, this volume aims, on the one hand, at detecting hidden similarities and “cryptotypes” in the actual legal treatment accorded by different European countries to personal interests which in some of these countries qualify as “personality rights”. On the other hand, this volume aims at detecting hidden disparities in the “law in action” of countries whose “law in the books” seem to protect one and the same personality interest in the same way.
