Brainstorming on Ethical Digital Content Agreements: A Digital Workshop

Wanted to share a link to a document I created that is open and editable to explore some of the ways terms of use, those things we accept when we join sites, might be more ethical, or user facing, when it comes to ownership of user generated content (as seen in the news with every social media site at some point over the past few years). Please feel free to jump in!

Ethical Digital Content Agreements

Hi Jade -

Great workshop topic - thanks! My initial thoughts center mostly around autonomy as a core value in ethical user agreements - primarily w/r/t default settings. The more laborious the UX to change settings (especially settings relevant to sharing exploitable user information), the more of a burden I see on the company/platform to offer a justification.

I'll look forward to others' thoughts on the doc.
