Mashups are novel content created by extracting and combining data and services from diverse data sources, in an automated manner, using Web services. The Web 2.0 technologies make it easier for individuals to create contents in third party service sites or clouds, and make easier for other third party mashup organizations to access and combine individuals' data and content through mashups. A big unaddressed challenge is how to adequately protect the privacy of individuals when information about them in the data sources are to be accessed and joined by mashup providers, which is different from two-party interaction (i.e. an individual and Web sites) as in many online environment.
