ZDNet: ​User data manifesto seeks to give people control of their data

Posted by ownCloud GmbH – 31. August 2015

Frank Karlitschek, founder of the open-source ownCloud program, has been seeking to define the “basic rights for people to control their own data in the Internet age.”

Karlitschek and his colleagues have been working on this idea since 2012. Now, in Berlin at the ownCloud Contributor Conference on August 29, they’ve launched the User Data Manifesto 2.0. This time, it has the support of not only its developers but multiple open-source organizations as well. The Manifesto is being backed by KDE, GNOME, and Free Software Foundation Europe.spideroak.jpgopendns-upload.jpg

The Manifesto aims to explain what it means to control your data and offers basic guidelines for services to measure their respect for users and their data.
