Information has become the new oil and the fundamental building block in the new digital era. Stakeholders are using, collecting and accumulating data, and using it for marketing and other various purposes. In this session, we will discuss the following interesting related topics: • When is it okay to do so (eg, copyrighted content and public data)? • Who has lawful access to the data (eg, robots.txt, CAPTCHAs and paywalls)? • What can be done with the information (eg, redisplay, text and data mining, and internal use versus commercial use)? • Who ultimately owns the data? • What are the contractual issues (eg, enforceable terms and conditions)?
