Is HIPAA Enough?
In the wake of the UCLA celebrity-watching debacle, it seems a lot of folks are looking at it and determining that the law isn't strong enough
. I say, this looks a lot like the response of knee-jerks who say more gun control would prevent gun tragedies like
Virginia Tech. But when the shooter already broke a law, why do you think an additional law would stop him? The nurses and doctors who snooped into Britney's files breached HIPAA; how would making HIPAA tougher stop them, if they were willing to peek in the first place?
