Bart Custers on CBC Radio on selling your own data
Companies like Facebook and Google make billions of dollars by selling or using our personal data. The data could be used by many different entities for many different reasons: from universities for research, to brands for creating targeted ads. But rather than just giving their data away to these companies in exchange for access to their platforms, some people are looking to options that allow them to make money selling access to their personal data.
Bart Custers, associate professor and head of research of eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies, was invited to talk about this topic on Spark, a radio show of the CBC (Canada) on technology and culture. The item was broadcasted on April 12th 2019 and can be listened here. The paper that dr. Custers wrote on this topic, together with Gianclaudio Malgieri of the VUB in Brussels can be found here.
