Are we in the gold rush era of data ownership? If so, who will stake a claim and how will it effect business, individuals or government? Our feature this week is a three-part series from John Sumser and Heather Bussing that explores Who Owns Data.

This post looks at the some of the legal and practical concepts of ownership. Actually, we’re looking at what you can’t own. Laws are based on people, places, and things. But you can’t hold a piece of data.
