Oil can be stolen or bought and sold as a commodity, but data can’t. Unlike oil, information and data as expression and communication are limitless, yet digital information is only available through IT.
Data is tricky stuff in legal terms and, as data value and volumes grow, disputes around the boundaries of what the law will protect are on the rise. A useful heuristic is that there are no rights in data, but legal rights arise in relation to data:
IP rights – copyright, database right, confidentiality and trade secrets
contract rights – financial market data for example is a $30bn global industry where ‘contract is king’
regulatory rights and duties – data protection, competition law and sector specific regulation.
In this seminar, Richard Kemp and Deirdre Moynihan from top data law specialist Kemp IT Law, will focus on IP rights in data and contracting for data. They will:
provide a chart to help attendees navigate data rights legal issues
look at recent developments in data IP law, data contracting and directions of travel for data policy
look at how organisations are developing IT-enabled management and governance of their data estates.
