Big tech and misuse of personal information – are class actions and regulators just one step too far behind?
Wednesday 2 November (1115 - 1230)
Class Actions Committee
Technology Law Committee
Regulators and litigators seem to be playing catch up with Big Tech and misuse of personal information as they try to reign in Big Tech's reach and power. We are starting to see multiple nation state regulators taking action or passing legislation to limit what they have uncovered about the misuse of personal data by Big Tech. We have also seen the varying successes and failures of class actions around the world taking on Big Tech. This session will survey the current global state of play and see what might lie in class actions in this fast moving and truly global space.
