Confronting the abuse, exploitation, and manipulation of personal data collected via internet use is one of society’s great challenges. The legal and economic issues related to the property rights of these harvested data have implications for topics including personal safety, firm profitability, and consumer welfare. Moreover, targeted misinformation campaigns that exploit such data, combined with the web’s unparalleled capacity to reach and influence a specified audience, represents a danger to the world’s democracies. As we prepare for generation 3.0 of the web, a panel of experts will discuss many of the extraordinarily urgent questions which will accompany its arrival.
