Cory Doctorow: A modest proposal to fix contracts
Companies persuade us to accept bespoke agreements like EULAs that have us waive our rights, this happens all the time now There's an idea here to force companies to provide the default law-provided contract terms as an alternative to the bespoke agreement (which often requires customers to shed their rights), and to tax companies the difference if they financially incentivize customers to choose the bespoke agreement But many services offer free services to their users in exchange for data So, could we take the tax idea further, and assign a dollar value to personal data, so that companies that harvest personal data have to pay more tax?
