Abstract

Literature on property rights suggests that consumers may have valid claims against database owners who use and sell personal information for direct marketing purposes. The marketplace, legal and societal implications of consumer ownership of personal information are explored. A policy framework is proposed that seeks to improve the relationship between marketers and consumers via improved consumer contact and information handling practices.
