Engagement and control protocol
Standards need to be developed that allow people to upload, control, and license use of their data.
For personal data we predict the need to build in a Personal Information Management System (PIMS) – including consent, right to forget, exclusions, data provenance, and the ability to license other users of data. We will also need a licensing layer in the metadata too. There are many useful lessons emerging from existing PIMS such as Xero and MyWave that can support this process. This is also true for commercial and scientific assets and other forms of data not about people. The methods of uploading and controlling access to data need to be developed as community-level expectations and protocols and technical standards.
