Abstract: The extreme sophistication of ICT and emerging technologies is expected to create what is called an 'Ambient Intelligence (AmI)' environment, which has already generated discussion on its positive and negative impacts. One thing is certain though: more and more personal data would be required to be collected, stored and exchanged and our 'online'/ digital lives would be even more difficult to separate from our physical ones. Towards addressing this issue, the Digital Territories concept envisages to enable users to manage proximity and distance with others in this future ambient intelligence space, both in a legal and a social sense, as is the case in the physical world. The paper provides an overview of the DT concept and defines its basic components. Also, with a view to clarify and better understand the DT concept and its application, the authors take the example of certain online services and applications (current and future) that have already raised serious privacy considerations and discuss DT's possible applicaton in that case.
