Joel Reidenberg, Stanley D. and Nikki Waxberg Chair and Academic Director of the Center on Law and Information Policy, appeared on a Norwegian news report about celebrity tax returns that are available on the Internet.

Reidenberg said, "It is rather shocking that a country wants to publicize the salaries of all of its citizens. IRS agents are fired because they improperly looked at celebrities' tax returns. They're not allowed to look at it. If you've grown up with it, that's part of the groundwork—it's there. But from an American perspective, that kind of information is really pretty intrusive."
