Is VRM the right name?
Perhaps it is too much inside baseball.
Personal Information Management Services is a term that has been used for similar services/concepts in the UK. However, that opens it up to anything and everything.
I've used VRM as reciprocal of CRM and folks who get CRM get the lightbulb very quickly.
Apparently CRM didn't get as much traction in the UK, so it has a bit of a negative connotation.
The US seems to have a fixation on IP: copyrights and patents and trademarks. Whereas in EU and Canada, privacy is much more important.
VRM, right now, has taken a certain hold. To move forward, we know what we are trying to do, we are generally of a common mind. We should continue our work and not focus so much on the name. If we need to get a better term as a "public" brand, that will be a bridge to cross when we are ready for a public push.
Customer Managed Relationships (CMR) is a term in use. Although perhaps in practice it isn't actually in the VRM direction. It is sort of a perverse way to say the user is in charge, but they aren't really.
