Privacy lost: The net, autonomous agents, and 'virtual information' [Book Review]

Ethics and Information Technology 1 (2):147-154 (1999)
The positive qualities of the Internet--anonymity, openness, and reproducibility have added a new ethical dimension to the privacy debate. This paper describes a new and significant way in which privacy is violated. A type of personal information, called virtual information is described and the effectiveness of techniques to protect this type of information is examined. This examination includes a discussion of technical approaches and professional standards as ways to address this violation of virtual information.
