Better phrasing than "own your data"

Asheesh Laroia has rightly pointed out that talking about "owning
your own data" is misleading, esp if extrapolating free culture
from free software, "data shouldn't have owners". Think of better
phrasing, update
` <>`_

"Also, people should be able to own their data." to something

How about "people should be able to be stewards of their own

A bit more verbose, but closer to what we mean.

-  entrust data to those with whom they share a common interest
-  entrust data to those with whom their interests are {more
   closely,better} aligned
-  entrust data with social interests in mind, rather than
-  **liberate their data from for-profit networks**
-  liberate themselves from systems designed to profit financially
   from their data
-  entrust data to networks run on social capital -- not financial
-  liberate their data with social capital in mind -- not

I emphasized my favorite so far. :) It's a complex issue!

This is updated. "own your data" -> "free your data from
proprietary control".
