9780814740378: The Digital Person: Technology and Privacy in the Information Age

Seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day, electronic databases are compiling information about you. As you surf the Internet, an unprecedented amount of your personal information is being recorded and preserved forever in the digital minds of computers. For each individual, these databases create a profile of activities, interests, and preferences used to investigate backgrounds, check credit, market products, and make a wide variety of decisions affecting our lives. The creation and use of these databases—which Daniel J. Solove calls “digital dossiers”—has thus far gone largely unchecked. In this startling account of new technologies for gathering and using personal data, Solove explains why digital dossiers pose a grave threat to our privacy.

The Digital Person sets forth a new understanding of what privacy is, one that is appropriate for the new challenges of the Information Age. Solove recommends how the law can be reformed to simultaneously protect our privacy and allow us to enjoy the benefits of our increasingly digital world.

From the Publisher:

"Daniel Solove is one of the most energetic and creative scholars writing about privacy today. THE DIGITAL PERSON is an important contribution to the privacy debate, and Solove’s discussion of the harms of what he calls ‘digital dossiers’ is invaluable." -- Jeffrey Rosen, author of The Unwanted Gaze and The Naked Crowd

"Solove’s book is the best exposition thus far about the threat that computer databases containing personal data about millions of Americans poses for information privacy. Solove documents not only how ongoing advances in information technology is increasing this threat significantly, but also how governmental uses of private sector databases and private sector uses of governmental databases are further eroding the privacy-by-obscurity protection of yesteryear. Most importantly, Solove offers a conception of privacy that, if adopted, provides guidance about policies that would preserve information privacy as a social value." -- Pamela Samuelson, Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Information Management at the University of California, Berkeley

"A must–read. THE DIGITAL PERSON is a far-reaching examination of how digital dossiers are shaping our lives. Daniel Solove has persuasively reconceptualized privacy for the digital age." -- Paul Schwartz, Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School

About the Author:

Daniel J. Solove is Associate Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School. He is the co-author of Information Privacy Law.
