Ex-motorsport boss Max Moseley in Norwich privacy talk

Former international motorsport boss Max Mosley will talk about the protection of privacy in a public lecture at the University of East Anglia (UEA) next week.

Mr Mosley, who was president from 1993 to 2009 of the F�d�ration Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the world governing body of Formula One, won a legal action against the News of the World in 2008 after it published details of his private life. Last month, Mr Mosley appeared at the European Court of Human Rights as part of his bid to change the UK's privacy laws.

The lecture, entitled The Protection of Privacy, has been organised by UEA's Law School and teaching and research group media@uea.

The lecture takes place at the Thomas Paine Study Centre lecture theatre on March 2.

Prof Alastair Mullis, head of the Law School, said: 'Max Mosley's treatment in the press poses many important issues for society. In particular when, and if so the extent to which, the fundamental right of freedom of expression should have to give way to an individual's right to privacy.'
