Digital Identity Nightmare


Via Kim Cameron comes this ACLU produced video of your worst digital identity nightmare. What keeps this from happening? I'm not sure. If you watch the video, you'll see that almost all the information that is revealed comes from two-party transactions where both sides have an ownership stake in the information from the transaction. By what right can I claim ownership of the data in a two-party transaction? I don't think that the mere fact that one party is an individual and one is a corporate entity is enough.
