Der Band dokumentiert die Ergebnisse und Empfehlungen einer Analyse zur Frage, wie sich IT-Gesetze entwickeln sollten, unter der Prämisse, dass die heutige und zukünftige Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie durch Cloud Computing geprägt ist. Insbesondere entwickelt sich diese Untersuchung auf einer vergleichenden und einer interdisziplinären Achse, d.h. als Rechtsvergleich zwischen EU und US-Recht und interdisziplinär zwischen Recht und IT. Die Arbeit konzentriert sich auf den Schwerpunkt vom Datenschutz und Datensicherheit in Cloud-Umgebungen und analysiert drei Hauptherausforderungen auf dem Weg zu einer effizienteren Cloud-Computing-Regulierung: Verständnis der Gründe für die Entwicklung divergierender Rechtsordnungen und Denkschulen zum IT-Recht Gewährleistung der Privatsphäre und Datenschutz in der Cloud konvergierende Regulierungsansätze für die Cloud in der Hoffnung auf eine harmonisierte Landschaft von IT-Gesetzen in der Zukunft.

Countries are increasingly introducing data localization laws, threatening digital globalization and inhibiting cloud computing adoption despite its acknowledged benefits. This multi-disciplinary book analyzes the EU restriction (including the Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation) through a cloud computing lens, covering historical objectives and practical problems, showing why the focus should move from physical data location to effective jurisdiction over those controlling access to intelligible data, and control of access to data through security.

This monograph examines how European Union law and regulation address concentrations of private economic power which impede free information flows on the Internet to the detriment of Internet users' autonomy. In particular, competition law, sector specific regulation (if it exists), data protection and human rights law are considered and assessed to the extent they can tackle such concentrations of power for the benefit of users. Using a series of illustrative case studies, of Internet provision, search, mobile devices and app stores, and the cloud, the work demonstrates the gaps that currently exist in EU law and regulation. It is argued that these gaps exist due, in part, to current overarching trends guiding the regulation of economic power, namely neoliberalism, by which only the situation of market failure can invite ex ante rules, buoyed by the lobbying of regulators and legislators by those in possession of such economic power to achieve outcomes which favour their businesses. Given this systemic, and extra-legal, nature of the reasons as to why the gaps exist, solutions from outside the system are proposed at the end of each case study. This study will appeal to EU competition lawyers and media lawyers.

Cloud Computing and Electronic Discovery offers an accessible resource that explores cloud computing technology’s impact on electronic discovery approaches in litigation and criminal investigations. The key issue from a legal perspective is that an investigator or litigant cannot simply access the data that is held by a third party in the cloud. Written by James P. Martin and Harry Cendrowski—experts in this emerging field—the book delves into this fascinating and rapidly-developing area of law to better prepare fraud investigators, legal professionals, forensic accountants, and executives with an understanding of the ramifications of storing data with third-party providers and how such storage mechanisms relate to the limits of discovery practices. In non-technical language, the authors reveal how data is stored and (at a high level) the technical aspects of hosted solutions that can affect production of data. As the authors explain, discovery of data within a cloud computing solution falls under the restrictions of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986. Today, judges use this law to rule on cases involving data created and stored by devices that would have been considered as science fiction in the almost thirty years since the law was first written. The book also explores in detail the Stored Communications Act (which falls within the Electronic Communications Privacy Act) as well as the prior laws that protected technological communications of a bygone era. Throughout the book, Martin and Cendrowski offer insights into legal concepts that shape current cases and the common themes of privacy issues. They also describe the limitations of the current laws in interpreting modern systems and devices. In addition, the book surveys many of the precedent-setting cases that involved interpretation of hosted data and access of that data by litigants or the government. Based on current trends and recent court cases, the book includes practical guidance on how to consider the availability of cloud data relevant to an investigation and how to include this data in discovery plans. The companion website includes the most recent updates to the laws covering cloud computing and electronic discovery. For business, accounting, and legal professionals, Cloud Computing and Electronic Discovery is an invaluable resource for understanding the evolution of cloud eDiscovery policies, practices, and law as they continue to unfold and develop.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: 95,5, Centre International de Formation Européenne - Nice (CIFE European Online Academy), course: European Law - Informational Self Determination in Cloud Computing -- Data Transmission and Privacy with Subcontractors, language: English, abstract: The paper analyses the constraints of the current European directive on data protection regarding the free and active exercise of the right to informational self-determination in cloud computing with subcontractor chains. The analysis focuses in particular on the personal and geographical scope of the protection of personal data, on the legitimation of data processing under the aspect of data transmission into secure and unsecure third countries with subcontractor involvement. Herein it will be critically analysed whether the options under which it is possible to process personal data, will deliver sufficient privacy security in cloud computing. Furthermore, the paper examines the effectiveness and the consequences of possible legitimation of processing personal data in cloud computing. Also, will be regarded the legitimation options to include subcontractors in complex cloud computing landscapes in secure and unsecure third countries. The data subject and the cloud user position and chances to execute their rights of informational self-determination in distributed cloud computing landscapes will be critical looked at. Based on the multiple challenges that the personal data faces in complex cloud computing landscapes, various improvement potentials addressed to different actors emphasis the necessity to reduce the risk to the data subject ́s informational self-determination in cloud computing. Finally, the recent regulation on general data protection that was published by the Council on 11th June 2015 will be cross-checked against the identified gaps of the currently existing data protection directive, with an emphasis on the requirements to achieve informational self-determination.
