„Legal issues of data-driven business models using the example of IoT“ by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Markus Fallenböck, LL.M. (Yale)

Online - Event KAIT from 03.11.2021, 17 - 19 h with 21 participants

While a lot of energy has gone into data protection regulation in the last 20 years, many data-based business models are associated with high legal uncertainty for companies. For example, in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) data, the question of ownership and thus protection arises between the companies involved. They can only invest in the expansion of this business if there is legal certainty about the power of disposal and its economic exploitation. There are exciting new questions here, especially in the area of copyright law, the protection of trade secrets or competition law.
