Data are widely considered to be the “oil” of the digital economy.

But whereas the concept seems essential and ubiquitous, social,

economic, and legal aspects associated with the meaning, ownership,

exchange, use, and protection of data remain highly contested even among

countries with similar economic and political systems like Japan and

Germany.

 

The speakers will present the main legal regulations and public

discourses related to the concept of data in Japan and Germany. In the

discussion, we will try to pinpoint major differences in the

understanding of data and their implications for the ownership,

protection, use, and international exchange.
