The study was published in the a world-leading IT law journal, Computer Law and Security Review, earlier this year and was produced during Václav’s appointment at the Digital Ethics Lab, within the Oxford Internet Institute, where he worked on the PETRAS project. Václav’s work on this topic has already earned the attention of legal practitioners, proving its relevance for the future of digital economy and, based on this work, he was appointed as an adviser to the international project on the ‘Principles for a Data Economy’.
