  • La tutela de la información personal y el uso de las redes sociales

    Vázquez Ruano, Trinidad (DIALNET OAI ArticlesUniversidad Carlos III: Instituto de Derechos Humanos Bartolomé de las Casas, 2012)
    The use of social networks currently offers many advantages. The networks are channels that allow you to distribute information in a easy way and without limitations. In addition the networks allow you to send all kinds of information and data. However, difficulties arise certain drawbacks, such as the risk or threat to privacy and, in particular, for the protection of personal data. Personal data are in the electronic environment a remarkable importance. The companies established in the new on-line market are going to try to acquire any type of information and data from the users that will be used to capture your attention and attract them to their electronic sites. Because the subject on the Internet is active. Although the use of certain technical tools for the collection of personal information be contrasted with the protection that the legal system provides for personal data.

  • Digitalisering- En studie i hur en digitaliseringspolicy färdas samt hur den tolkas och översätts i praktiken

    Heidlund, Marcus (Mittuniversitetet, Institutionen för informationssystem och –teknologi, 2020)
    Anledningar till att digitalisera en verksamhet eller organisation är många. Barcevičius et al., (2019) har visat i att det inom offentlig sektor handlar om att motivera digitalisering genom bland annat kostnadsbesparingar, kostnadseffektiviseringar och effektiva tjänsteleveranser. Nu börjar en del aktörer och forskare argumentera för varför välfärden ska digitaliseras, där ett av de mest drivande argumenten är den framtida demografiska utmaningen. Studier som (Sundberg, 2019a) visar att använda digitalisering inte enbart resulterar i fördelar, i vissa fall ifrågasätts inte digitaliseringen utan den antas vara något som en organisation behöver anpassa sig till. Det här arbetet har använt sig av tidigare forskning inom området “policy enactment” för att dels (i) kritiskt granska olika digitaliseringspolicies kopplade till välfärden samt genom (ii) två studier av hur dessa kan förstås ur ett praktiker-perspektiv. En kvantitativ datainsamling bland vård- och omsorgsaktörer som ses som generella praktiker samt en djupdykning i specifika praktiker genom en kvalitativ datainsamling av två kommuner. Resultaten visar att praktiker prioriterar att erbjuda bättre service till sina patienter och medborgare och att “grand narratives” som ”att vara bäst i världen” inte upplevs som att ge något mervärde i praktiken. Samtidigt är praktiker medvetna om den demografiska utmaningen som Sverige står inför men varje praktiker tolkar utmaningen på olika sätt utifrån sin mer lokala kontext och efterfrågar lösningar baserat på hur de tolkat problemet. Den här uppsatsen drar slutsatsen att det finns flera drivande faktorer till att digitalisera välfärden och offentlig sektor men det är inte nödvändigtvis de faktorer som motiveras i digitaliseringspoliciesen. Det visade sig även att en storstadskommun kan dra lärdomar från en landsbygdskommun och vise versa.
  • The electronic fabric of resistance : a constructive network of online users and activists challenging a rigid copyright regime

    Lee, Kwang-Suk (Research Online, 2009-01-01)
    The study examines the autonomous activities of South Korea’s Internet users to counter the new intellectual property (IP) regime, specifically, how Internet users and civil rights groups joined together early in 2005 to construct a widespread network of resistance against the 2004 Copyright Act, and how the two camps interacted with each other. During the first quarter of 2005, Internet users’ counter-activities to the copyright law were spontaneous and voluntarily interconnected to each other without any help from the civil rights movement. The users’ activities sprang spontaneously from anger that the government’s IP regime would deprive them of their rights of cultural expression, which had previously been little regulated. Later, the widespread resistance of Internet users against the government’s policies was transformed into a united front with civil rights groups against the IP regime. Moreover, the users’ actions provided the momentum to hammer out an alternative license model, which civil rights groups designed for the purpose of softening the rigid copyright system. The present study investigates the context and the chronology of events and issues in late 2004 and especially early 2005 that led to the rise of e-resistance or digital activism in South Korea. To add depth to this examination, the author also refers to in-depth interviews of opinion leaders in civil rights groups who were deeply involved in organizing the resistance of Internet users. To investigate Internet users’ activities targeted at a specific socio-cultural agenda both online and offline, the proposed study will adopt Hardt and Negri’s concept of the “multitude” — a new social class that attempts to mobilize a network with its neighbors in order to obtain a set of resources with which to build a political project by itself. This concept of multitude was originally used to describe a unified power of many voices resisting global capitalism, but the present study applies the concept to the many and varied citizen stakeholders who resisted the current trajectory of the Korean IP regime. The present study stresses importance of looking at how different citizens, whether individual Internet users, online activists groups, or offline civil rights groups, worked together to articulate an alternative vision of copyright. The Korean experience of e-activism to the IP regime suggests that there is a limited value to simply sharing copyrighted intellectual works among users; what is really needed is to explore means to legitimate a model of sharing creative works that is more open, more liberating, and more conducive to democracy and a free culture. The solidarity of Internet users and online activist groups in organizing both online and offline protests and in developing an alternative licensing model offers an example of how to resist and rebuild copyright policies tailored exclusively to the economic demands of the global market.
