Internet Privacy Rights analyses the current threats to our online autonomy and privacy and proposes a new model for the gathering, retention and use of personal data. Key to the model is the development of specific privacy rights: a right to roam the internet with privacy, a right to monitor the monitors, a right to delete personal data and a right to create, assert and protect an online identity. These rights could help in the formulation of more effective and appropriate legislation, and shape more privacy-friendly business models. The conclusion examines how the internet might look with these rights in place and whether such an internet could be sustainable from both a governmental and a business perspective.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an excellent piece of work which I'm sure will influence future thinking about the internet, its uses and abuses.' Raymond Wacks, Emeritus Professor of Law and Legal Theory, University of Hong Kong
'In the debate about public and private use of the internet, Internet Privacy Rights ... is a refreshing and accessible solution. If we accept that the internet can be both liberating and generate inequality and oppression, then we expose the balance that needs to be struck and the need for global perspective. The book looks at many of the different ways that our privacy is infringed, from government surveillance to hacking. Such issues have the potential to create global tension, but for Bernal the solution is a not impossible privacy-friendly future.' Felicity Gerry, The Times
'... this is a well-written and insightful account of the current state of privacy online as well as a manifesto for reform. As an overview of the issues in internet privacy law, it is both accessible to the general reader and consistently interesting to the specialist, and can be confidently recommended to both.' T. J. McIntyre, Irish Jurist
