  • Managing Records and Information for Transparent, Accountable, and Inclusive Governance in the Digital Environment

    Thurston, Anne (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2015-08-19)
    This set of three case studies explores
 the intersection of openness, digital governance, andhigh
 quality information in Estonia,1 Finland, and Norway with
 the aim of identifying lessonsthat will support the same
 objectives in lower resource countries. Openness, a key
 aspect ofthe international agenda for increasing
 transparency and accountability, for reducing public
 sectorcorruption, and for strengthening economic
 performance, rests on the principle that citizenshave a
 right to know what their governments are doing and to
 benefit from using governmentinformation. Goals for open,
 accountable, and inclusive governance rest on the assumption
 thattrustworthy information is available and can be shared
 meaningfully through strategies for digitalgovernance. This
 assumption needs to be examined. Does reliable and complete
 informationexist across lower resource countries? Can it be
 accessed readily? Will it survive through time?
  • Software Patents and the Internet of Things in Europe, the United States and India

    Northumbria University; Northumbria University; 0000-0001-6918-5398; Noto La Diega, Guido (Sweet and Maxwell, 2020-07-04)
    This article sheds light on the pressing issue of the patentability of computer-implemented inventions by giving account of the approaches followed in Europe, United States, and India. The occasion of this study is the adoption in 2016 of the final version of the Indian guidelines on the examination of computer-related inventions, which have been surprisingly overlooked in the legal literature. The main idea is that the Internet of Things will lead to a dramatic increase of applications for software patents and if examiners, courts, and legislators will not be careful, there is the concrete risk of a surreptitious generalised grant of patents for computer programs as such (in Europe) and for abstract ideas (in the United States). The clarity provided by the Indian guidelines, following a lively public debate, can constitute good practices that Europe and the United States should take into account.
  • After the Gold Rush: The Boom of the Internet of Things, and the Busts of Data-Security and Privacy

    Posadas, Dalmacio V., Jr. (FLASH: The Fordham Law Archive of Scholarship and History, 2017-01-01)
    This Article addresses the impact that the lack of oversight of the Internet of Things has on digital privacy. While the Internet of Things is but one vehicle for technological innovation, it has created a broad glimpse into domestic life, thus triggering several privacy issues that the law is attempting to keep pace with. What the Internet of Things can reveal is beyond the control of the individual, as it collects information about every practical aspect of an individual’s life, and provides essentially unfettered access into the mind of its users. This Article proposes that the federal government and the state governments bend toward consumer protection while creating a cogent and predictable body of law surrounding the Internet of Things. Through privacy-by-design or self-help, it is imperative that the Internet of Things—and any of its unforeseen progeny—develop with an eye toward safeguarding individual privacy while allowing technological development.
