Learning outcomes

This course provides students with legal notions and concepts necessary to understand the meaning, reach and scope of application of legal rules in the field of new technologies from a comparative and transnational perspective. The law of new technologies is dealt with both from a theoretical perspective, with focus on the effectiveness and efficacy of legal rules, and from a practical one, with focus on normative and contractual texts and relevant court decisions from multiple jurisdictions.

At the end of the course the student has to show to have acquired the following skills:
● knowledge of objects and methodologies of comparative law applied to new technologies, with specific reference to the notions and fundamental concepts relating to data (personal data, sensitive data, economic data, "big data")
● ability to develop an economic analysis in relations with the law of new technologies, in particular for what concerns the theory of monopoly and economies of scale (consumption, production, innovation)
● familiarity with European legal rules relating to conflict of laws and conflict of jurisdiction in matters of law and technologies and associated online dispute resolution methods
● knowledge of the basics of comparative and transnational personal identity law and in relation to digital identity and data protection laws, in particular for what concerns Europe, United States and China
● knowledge of the concept of property in comparative law, in relation to the different methods of data processing
● knowledge of the basics of comparative and European intellectual property law and competition applied to new technologies (data protection, software and database protection in Europe, the United States and China, unfair competition and competition, abuse of a dominant position, anti-competitive agreements , relations between competition law and "big data"
● knowledge of the basics of European, comparative and transnational law for what concerns contracts based on new technologies and data transfer
● ability to evaluate the transmission and processing of data and consumer protection rules.
