There are privacy laws, which work if the other person is honest. Criminals and governments (same thing in many cases) don't obey laws. The best solution is to keep all sensitive information off your computer, and/or encrypted. Then, if you're lucky, it might stay 'private.'

Demanding privacy is not the same as having something to hide. I have nothing to hide and I still demand my privacy.
The acceptance of such a false equivalence is perhaps one of the reasons why Microsoft can create spyware in the form of an operating system and apparently so many people are OK with it.

This video illustrates well the path Microsoft has taken.
This is logical. Hard to argue.
