Compelling truth: Legal protection of the infosphere against big data spills

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The paper explores whether legal and ethical concepts that have been used to protect the natural environment can also be leveraged to protect the ‘infosphere’, a neologism used by Luciano Floridi to characterize the totality of the informational environment. We focus, in particular, on the interaction between allocation of (intellectual) property rights and ‘communication duties’, in particular, data breach notification duties.
