Expression about a person's public reputation will receive greater protection1 than expression about a person's private or family life2: the European Court of Human Rights has offered little support for publications whose sole aim is to divulge the private lives of public personalities without contributing to a public interest debate3. This will apply particularly to revelations about a person's health4 or sexual relationships5. Where children are involved the courts will accord particular weight to their rights under Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life) in order to promote their best interests above all else
