"The power of data ownership: In all of the business models, the data source owner is probably the most powerful stakeholder in the value chain."

Is that so? Why?

I don't think the source owner is just always more powerful. Example: highly competitive commoditised market, e.g. coffee beans, to my knowledge oil too ... if there are lots of sellers (crude oil), and few buyers (refiners), you're not in a powerful position.

It seems to me it depends very much on the value of the data, and the available alternatives.

I don't think data ownership is a great advantage anymore ... but I might be biased by my particular industry background (analytics).

"Luckily we have the correct legal frameworks to share data in a secure and compliant way."

Is that so? Why? Which of the criticisms are (not) valid?
