[PROMPT] I have a theory that states all data points belong to the actor who created them. I justify this stance via current United States Intellectual Property and Copyright Laws, and related case law and precedents. Can you set forth the principles of this stance, based upon information deduced or inferred from the information as presented? Present response as an essay of no more than 1500 words, written to eight-grade reading level. Use analogy where appropriate but avoid condescending tone. Summarize by demonstrating how treating these things in the same way would be the ethical and reasonable response of a democracy and why failure to do so should be considered as concerning.
[OPERATOR RATIONALE] I decided to use Bing to elaborate the detail behind a tightly compressed prompt in which I create the context, historical referents, and the skeleton of the theory in sufficient form and at appropriate depth to permit the AI/ML model to unpack the concepts and, by relation, pull together the words that form the framework… essentially saving me the time of the draft writing. From here (as shown below), I will edit into its final form, as part of a book I am working on. In the interim, and as proof of what I can do thanks to an autistic specialization in language, this item, for your edification, enjoyment, and insight.
p.s.: Raph Koster – This is the remainder of the thought that you dismissed because to accept it meant you can’t make money. I submit to you, good sir, that is the wrong intention/motivation that has, at large, cost us the very world. Thus, my suggestion that to the degree art mimics life, you might consider MAKING the new way that is the change. It will happen. It just won’t be you doing it. That’s a choice. /bow
Imagine you are an artist who paints beautiful pictures. You spend a lot of time and effort creating your paintings, and you are proud of them. You want to share them with the world, so you post them online for everyone to see. But then you discover that someone else has copied your paintings and is selling them without your permission. How would you feel? Would you think that is fair?
This is similar to what happens when you create data online. Data is any information that you generate or provide when you use the internet, such as your name, email, photos, videos, messages, likes, searches, purchases, and more. Data is valuable because it can be used for many purposes, such as advertising, research, education, entertainment, and more. But who owns your data? Who has the right to use it and benefit from it?
According to a theory based on the laws of the United States, your data belongs to you because it is a form of intellectual property. Intellectual property is any work that is created by the human mind and has originality and creativity. Intellectual property includes inventions, writing, music, designs, and computer software. The United States Constitution gives Congress the power to make laws that protect the rights of the creators and owners of intellectual property. These laws are called intellectual property laws.
One type of intellectual property law is copyright law. Copyright law protects original works of authorship as soon as they are fixed in a tangible form of expression. This means that when you write a book, record a song, or take a photo, you automatically have the right to control how it is used and who can benefit from it. You do not need to register your work or put a notice on it to have this right. Copyright law does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, but it may protect the way they are expressed.
Another type of intellectual property law is patent law. Patent law protects inventions that are new, useful, and non-obvious. This means that when you invent something that solves a problem or improves a process, you can apply for a patent that gives you the exclusive right to make, use, or sell your invention for a limited time. You need to register your invention and disclose how it works to get a patent. Patent law does not protect abstract ideas or natural phenomena, but it may protect how they are applied.
Based on these laws, data can be considered as a form of intellectual property because it is created by the human mind and has originality and creativity. Data is not just facts or ideas; it is also how you express them through your choices and actions online. Data is not just natural phenomena; it is also how you apply them through your preferences and interests online. Data is not just information; it is also your personal identity and expression online.
Therefore, according to this theory, you have the right to control how your data is used and who can benefit from it. You should be able to decide whether you want to share your data or keep it private. You should be able to choose whether you want to sell your data or give it away for free. You should be able to know who is using your data and for what purpose. You should be able to access your data and correct it if it is wrong.
This theory also implies that anyone who uses your data without your permission or consent is violating your rights. This could be a person, a company, or a government that collects, stores, analyzes, or sells your data without telling you or asking you. This could also be a hacker, a thief, or a spy who steals or accesses your data without authorization.
Why does this matter? Why should we treat data as intellectual property? Because treating data as intellectual property would be the ethical and reasonable response of a democracy that values human dignity and freedom. Democracy is a system of government where people have the power to choose their leaders and make decisions about their lives. Democracy depends on respect for human dignity and freedom: the idea that every person has worth and deserves respect; the idea that every person has rights and responsibilities; the idea that every person has the ability and opportunity to pursue their goals and happiness.
Treating data as intellectual property would respect human dignity and freedom because it would recognize that data is part of who we are and what we do online. It would acknowledge that data reflects our thoughts, feelings, opinions, beliefs, values, talents, skills, hobbies, passions, dreams, and more. It would affirm that data represents our individuality and diversity as human beings.
Treating data as intellectual property would also protect human dignity and freedom because it would prevent abuse and exploitation of our data by others. It would ensure that we have control over our own data and how it affects our lives. It would prevent others from using our data against us or without our benefit. It would prevent others from harming us or violating our privacy with our data.
Failing to treat data as intellectual property would be concerning because it would threaten human dignity and freedom in a democracy. It would mean that we do not care about our own data or the data of others. It would mean that we do not respect ourselves or others as human beings online. It would mean that we allow others to take advantage of us or harm us with our data.
Therefore, according to this theory based on the laws of the United States,
all data points belong to the actor who created them because they are a form
of intellectual property that deserves protection and respect.
