Although seventy-seven years have passed since its launching, the right of privacy is still in its infancy. But we can say that the doctrine is no longer a generality and courts have developed principles which are applied and followed in jurisdictions where the doctrine has been recognized. Laudatory invasion of privacy cases fall into the category of public disclosure of private facts about the plaintiff.
