Abstract

In electronic messaging systems, private information is often communicated to an individual or group of individuals. Whilst systems exist to prevent the redistribution of private information to third parties, the systems also prevent further collaboration on that information by the original recipients. A system is needed to allow the recipients of the private information to further collaborate on that information, whilst still maintaining the control over redistribution to third parties. This system will use a messaging system controlled flag to instruct the client messaging application on the privacy behaviour to enforce.
