What are data? How does the law protect them? How to construct data protection models?
The third edition of the course
The course introduces students to the complex subject of "economic data law", ie the whole normative material regulating who (in the market space) can use what data and under what conditions. The issues of privacy law, property law as well as consumer law are presented. Moreover, the course thoroughly explores the philosophical foundations of data law and the socio-technological foundations of the world we live in. The latest proposals of the European Union, which have a chance to change the face of data law in the coming years, are also analyzed.
