Hacking and invasion of privacy

The wife of the former British Prime Minister has sued a newspaper for hacking into her telephone. I suppose that this is an invasion of privacy. In a similar suit, the newspaper had agreed to pay damages to the plaintiff. Details can be read here: http://www.todayonline.com/World/Worldinbrief/EDC120224-0000027/Cherie-Blair-sues-News-of-the-World-publisher-as-an-alleged-victim-of-phone-hacking I wish to extend this case to a familiar situation in the Internet world. If a person uses the ID and password to "hack" into the account of another user, this act of hacking is similar and may be subject to the same consequences. Many people may not realize that invasion of privacy can be a serious matter. I wish to highlight this case. I hope that our lawmakers and law enforcers will also help to promote a better understanding of the legal position.
