I also posted this on Doc Searl’s IT Garage, in response to his comments about Dave Kearn’s piece on DRM and its potential applicability to user-centric Identity.

May I suggest two terms that seem to fit the current dicussion about how Digital Rights Management may fit with User-Centric Identity? It seems that the discussion is focused on “Identity Rights Management” or “Digital Identity Rights Management.” The question is who has rights to own, control or use an individual’s Digital Identity or attributes of one’s identity.

User-centric identity proponents may argue that Identity Rights belong exclusively to individuals, and that any institution’s use of a Digital Identity should be limited to cases where an individual gives explicit permission for its use.

At the other extreme, Customer Relationship Management advocates may argue that any attribute of an individual’s Digital Identity in the enterprise’s possession can be used however the enterprise see’s fit.
