Who is a digital consumer? With European policy being made with the Digital Single Market as a vision, Netopia decided to take a closer look at the concept of the digital consumer. Netopia contributor Peter Warren conducted a series of interviews with academics and experts to get a better understanding of an issue very much at the center of European debate. Warren is also the author of the 2013 Netopia report Can We Make the Digital World Ethical?

The main finding is that there is no clear difference of digital and physical consumption, all consumers are both and all consumption is local. Tailored products and services exist because of demand, not business interests or any other reason.
