How to Regain Control Over Our Data, Privacy, and Autonomy

Maurice E. Stucke

  • Fully explores how data-opolies colonize and dominate markets
  • Identifies three fundamental shortcomings in the proposed remedies, which assume that more competition and an ownership interest in our data or GDPR-like privacy measures will somehow reign in these data-opolies
  • Explores the looming privacy/competition divide and flags several traps that await policymakers in trying to promote both competition and privacy
  • Examines solutions that can promote privacy, deter the toxic competition caused by behavioral advertising, and balance privacy and healthy competition when they conflict
