Interesting article -- we just fought off attempts to censor the Internet in the US.

Is the idea of owning one's data and enforcement of that through network protocols good for privacy? We can be sure that such a mechanism, if available, would be used for copyright enforcement. What affects would that have?

The author argues that ownership of personal data is critical to privacy and goes from there.

cheers-
