11. On December 10, 1948, the United Nations proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights...
... as a resolution, with a count of 48 votes to none with only 8 abstentions.
My reply is not a direct answer to your question, but it is an interesting avenue to understand and consider.
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
A good set of questions and answers is available on the United Nations Association in Canada website.
The Universal Declaration was conceived as a statement of objectives to be pursued by Governments, and therefore it is not part of binding international law.
Q: What are the main principles upheld by the Declaration?
Q: What is the International Bill of Human Rights?
The full text of the UDHR is available on the U.N. website.
