In Digital Freedom, N. D. Batra explores the tension between the boundlessness of the Internet and the boundaries of the marketplace, as well as the resulting impact on human expression, privacy, and social controls. Batra's thought-provoking book looks at these issues including surveillance, intellectual property, and copyright from the perspective of an evolutionary, self-organizing social system. This system both creates and assimilates innovations and, in the process, undergoes reorganization and renewal. Above all, Digital Freedom is an exploration of and meditation on the question: How much freedom does a person need?
