Everyone who's ever followed an Entertainment Tonight program for more than one day or read anything about the private life of Elvis has probably gotten a glimpse of what extent celebrities will go to in order to protect their privacy.

The questions are: 1.) How much privacy can a celebrity expect compared to an average person with no special status and 2.) How much information about a person of notoriety is the public actually entitled to know?

Unfortunately, privacy issues for these folks sometimes go well beyond any bona-fide news coverage.  Reporters and cameras following a celebrity into a night club is far different that following one into a court room.
