Digital Rights . Data Equity


Article 31–The Right to Identity

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was written in 1948 and has 30 Articles. None mention identity, data, the Internet or digital connectivity. If you do not have these things today you do not have equity or equal opportunities.

We need a new Article 31.

“Everyone should have property rights to any data they create. Only they can decide what to share with whom, when and how. Everyone must directly benefit from any value their data creates. They have the right to know if any data about them is held by others and how it is used. Everyone has the right to connectivity to enjoy their rights in a borderless digital world.”

We generate all b#IDs (free of charge) and govern their ethical use. We defend the data rights of all b#ID holders. Our mission is to change how people own, manage, and benefit from use of their digital identity and data – promoting that they must create their digital identity, own their data, and choose what to share, when, and with whom. As a ‘data cooperative’ of all B#ID holders, we are a stakeholder in developing global policy and standards by Governments and Companies that are truly fit for the future.
