Nicklas Berild Lundblad, ‘Privacy in the Noise Society’

In this paper, an economic study of different levels of expected privacy, both individual and collective, is used to demonstrate that we live neither in a dystopian control society nor in a utopian privacy enhanced society, but rather in a noise society characterized by high collective expectations of privacy and low individual expectations of privacy. This has profound consequences for the design of privacy law, privacy enhancing technologies and the sociology of privacy.
