Data Law in a Global Digital Economy
This symposium, held jointly by the NYU Law Review, the Guarini Institute for Global Legal Studies and the Institute for International Law and Justice at NYU School of Law, examined how law does, should, or can affect data ownership, concentration, and control in a global digital economy. It sought to reconstruct the law of data through foundational legal concepts such as contract, torts, property, trusts/fiduciary law, antitrust, and tax. While drawing on established approaches in intellectual property law and information privacy law, the symposium focused mainly on current legal practices and future directions in data contracting and liability, data trusts, data portability and agglomeration, ownership and property rights of data, and the export of competing models of data law. The symposium is part of a project to re-conceptualize data law and regulation in the global digital economy.
