Rights and Responsibilities

Jill Lawrence
What user rights do you feel should be part of the norms in this digital world?  

People should be allowed to speak freely within reason, they should always be made fully aware of any unintended consequences involved when linking on to any site, such as the sharing of personal information with other stakeholders. People should always fully know the risks involved with doing any personal transactions online, they should not be taken advantage of online by people holding more power than themselves.

What user responsibilities do you feel should be expressed in this digital world?  

People online should always behave within a moral or ethical code that approximates the unwritten codes used when interacting in real life. Consideration for things like sensitivity to others, slander, defamation, ethical business practices, bullying, self depreciation and self harm should be at the fore front.
