There's an interesting book out by Anne Wells Branscomb,
"Who owns information? From privacy to public access,"
Basic Books, 1994. She starts with such simple questions
- Who owns your name ?
- Who owns your address ?
and goes, if I remember rightly, to
- Who owns your drivers license ?
The answers are the obvious ones - nor are they simple
ones. No one would buy the book if they were.
Definitely worth reading.
