In the article above, data brokers are people that collect, analyze, and package some of our most sensitive personal information and sell it as a commodity…to each other, to advertisers, even the government, often without our direct knowledge.
So with that being said, my suggested plan of action would be that the government has to pay us [domestic] in some type of form if brokers are able to sell it to other people. If brokers could make money off of data that is really not theirs, then why cant they give a percentage back to the people that they taking the data from? Better yet, if we had a direct contact with the NSA for taking our data it would maximize revenue for us.
By doing this the government would have to limit themselves from taking our data due to the dollar to data ratio. Plus we would be more willing to let them access our data if we had some type of collateral.
