The Streisand Effect

Trying to suppress something, only to have it blow up in the news as a result, is known as the Streisand Effect. It takes its name from singer Barbra Streisand, who, in 2003, sued the California Coastal Records Project over pictures an aerial photographer took of her house, claiming the photos violated her privacy. Few knew about the images before the lawsuit (in fact, they’d only been viewed six times—and two of those were her lawyers); now everyone does. She lost the lawsuit.
