Digital Person by Daniel J. Solove

Book Description

Seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, electronic databases are compiling information about you. As you surf the Internet, an unprecedented amount of your personal information is being recorded and preserved forever in the digital minds of computers. For each individual, these databases create a profile of activities, interests, and preferences used to investigate backgrounds, check credit, market products, and make a wide variety of decisions affecting our lives. The creation and use of these databases-which Daniel J. Solove calls "digital dossiers"-has thus far gone largely unchecked. In this startling account of new technologies for gathering and using personal data, Solove explains why digital dossiers pose a grave threat to our privacy. The Digital Person sets forth a new understanding of what privacy is, one that is appropriate for the new challenges of the Information Age. Solove recommends how the law can be reformed to simultaneously protect our privacy and allow us to enjoy the benefits of our increasingly digital world. The first volume in the series EX MACHINA: LAW, TECHNOLOGY, AND SOCIETY

Books By Author Daniel J. Solove

Understanding Privacy by Daniel J. Solove Understanding Privacy, Paperback (September 2009)

Privacy is one of the most important concepts of our time, yet it is also one of the most elusive. This book offers an overview of the difficulties involved in discussions of privacy and also provides a provocative resolution. It argues that no single definition can be workable, but rather that there are multiple forms of privacy.

Future of Reputation by Daniel J. Solove Future of Reputation, Paperback (October 2008)

Offers an account of how the Internet is transforming gossip, the way we shame others, and our ability to protect our own reputations. Focusing on blogs, Internet communities, and cybermobs, this book shows that, ironically, the unconstrained flow of information on the Internet may impede opportunities for self-development and freedom.
