Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Digital Freedom, N. D. Batra explores the tension between the boundlessness of the Internet and the boundaries of the marketplace, as well as the resulting impact on human expression, privacy, and social controls. Batra's thought-provoking book looks at these issuesincluding surveillance, intellectual property, and copyrightfrom the perspective of an evolutionary, self-organizing social system. This system both creates and assimilates innovations and, in the process, undergoes reorganization and renewal. Above all, Digital Freedom is an exploration of and meditation on the question How much freedom does a person need?

Book News Annotation:

As Batra (communications, Norwich U.) explains in his preface, this book "explores, through legal cases, media stories, and historical examples, various issues including privacy, surveillance, creative expression, and democracy form the perspective of an evolutionary, self-organizing social system that creates and assimilates innovations and, in the process, undergoes reorganization and renewal." He is particularly concerned with how the advent of the Internet is influencing the emergence and dissipation of forms of expressive freedoms, including those related to intellectual property, in the US and around the world.
