I'm not sure how to accomplish this, but we would all benefit from the following:

(01) Personal information is owned exclusively by the person that the data is about.
(02) Ownership may not be sold or transferred, but it may be licensed.
(03) A royalty must be payed to the owner by licensees.
(04) Owners may waive royalty payments for non-profit, non-commercial studies.
(05) Royalty waivers may not be performed by click through licenses. (Think software license with a waiver imbedded in its many clauses.)
(06) Some personal information is public (eg name) and not subject to license or royalty.

Doubtless the royalty payments will count as income and will be taxed as such.

Only 49% of the businesses surveyed had a #databreach   #security   plan in place.

Excellent article. It covers a lot of important material so it is a tad longer than most articles written for the general public.

Did you know about this?
Critics say the U.S. Postal Service, which photographs every piece of mail, doesn't do enough to protect the privacy of Americans.
