Information Technology has occupied substantial space in our day to day life and in running of businesses.

How do we balance rewarding tech companies for their innovation, and possibility of unfair exploitation, particularly where I T services are ‘free’. ‘Free’ services are ‘paid’ by consumers by their time, attention and data.
