  Identity theft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Identity theft (or identity fraud) is the deliberate assumption of another person's identity, usually to gain access to their finances or frame them for a crime.
Assuming a false identity with the knowledge and approval of the person being impersonated, such as for cheating on an exam, is not considered to be identity theft.
Identity fraud actually is often committed without identity theft, as in the case of relatives who have been granted access to personal records, or criminals who randomly generate credit card numbers for fraud without even knowing the name of the victim.

 Identity Theory [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The contingency of mind-brain identity relations also serves to answer the objection that since presently accepted correlations may very well be empirically invalidated in the future, mental states and brain states should not be viewed as identical.
Token Identity theories hold that every concrete particular falling under a mental kind can be identified with some physical (perhaps neurophysiological) happening or other: instances of pain, for example, are taken to be not only instances of a mental state (e.g., pain), but instances of some physical state as well (say, c-fiber excitation).
So the Identity Theory, taken as a theory of types rather than tokens, must make some claim to the effect that mental states such as pain (and not just individual instances of pain) are contingently identical with--and therefore theoretically reducible to--physical states such as c-fiber excitation.

 Phil Windley's Technometria | Identity Archives
Dick is the founder of SXIP and a proponent of user-centric identity.
Identity 2.0 is analogous to how credentials work in the real world: distributed and user controlled—the driver’s license bureau doesn’t know where you’re presenting its credentials and who’s accepting them.
For example, preventing identity theft may be better addressed by giving individuals greater control over the disclosure of their own personal information, while prevention of terrorism may be more effectively managed through strengthened border patrols and increased presence at borders, or allocating adequate resources for conventional police intelligence work.

 Amazon.com: Books: Identity: A Novel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Although Milan Kundera's work, Identity, was a New York Times notable book, critics internationally have accused him of breaking a so-called reader-writer contract in which the completion of plot is meant to finish the presentation of character.
This type of criticism does not befit a renowned writer who convinced the world years ago that the duty of a novelist, at least in his own case, was to teach readers to comprehend life as a question rather than as an answer and to understand fiction as an idea rather than a story.
Besides the fact Identity was originally written in French as opposed to Kundera's first language, Czech in which he wrote his previous works, there is no discrepancy in talent between this book and his earlier, more popular, one.
