This chapter covers several torts that have little to do with each other:
Invasion of privacy: The tort of “invasion of privacy” is actually a cluster of four different, but related, torts.
Misappropriation of identity:“Misappropriation of identity” occurs where P’s name or likeness has been used by D for D’s financial benefit, without P’s consent.
Intrusion on solitude:“Intrusion on solitude” occurs where D invades P’s private space in a manner which would be highly offensive to a reasonable person in P’s position.
Publicity of private life: “Publicity of private life” or “public disclosure” occurs where D publicly discloses a non-public detail of P’s private life, where the effect would be highly offensive to a reasonable person in P’s position.
False light: “False light” occurs where D publishes false statements about P which, although not defamatory, would be highly offensive to a reasonable person in P’s position.
