Government interest is a concept in law that allows the government to regulate a given matter. For instance, there has been held to be a compelling government interest in restricting access to unapproved prescription drugs.[1] Protecting residential privacy has been recognized as a significant government interest by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit.[2]
