ALSO A CONTRIBUTION OF SIMONA LAVAGNINI IN THE VOLUME “DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET AND CLOUD SERVICES”, WHICH WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES ON OCTOBER 17, 2018.
On the subject of legislation on cloud services, the new publication by Franzosi, Pollicino and Campus is available, entitled “Digital Single Market and Cloud Services”, to which Avv. Simona Lavagnini also contributed with the paper: “Legal Profiles of Cloud Computing: protection and management of computer programs”.
In the context of the Digital Single Market, the initiative to adapt the European single market to the digital age, we cannot help but consider some crucial issues that deserve particular consideration. Among these is undoubtedly that of the cloud, especially with reference to the problems that a technology of this type, which allows the storage, processing and transmission of data, can create with respect to the needs of protection of intellectual property, as well as the privacy associated with the circulation of data. The volume focuses on all aspects related to Cloud Services, both from a purely technical point of view, both from an economic and, above all, regulatory point of view, with a careful evaluation of the proposals for reform of the European Commission, as well as the most relevant Italian and European jurisprudential guidelines. The focus is particularly on the so-called Big Data, also assessing the potential new forms of responsibility for cloud managers.
In particular, the paper provided by Simona Lavagnini focuses on the profiles related to industrial and intellectual property rights in cloud-based technologies, analysing the relationship between the principle of exhaustion and the acts of software distribution. Among other things, the emphasis is on the strong process of dematerialization of the company structure, which is leading to the transition to a system in which the company accesses the intangible assets necessary for its activities through “pay-per-use” contracts, in which the use of data and content occurs for limited periods of time.
The volume, which makes use of the contributions, in addition to Avv. Lavagnini, also of many other jurists and leading professionals in the sector, will be presented on October 17 in Rome at the Chamber of Deputies, in the presence of the members of the Parliament’s innovation intergroup.
