Description: Because of the increasing ease of digitization, all information has the potential to be digitized and as such, all information is becoming part of a single, incomprehensibly large, multinational, multicultural data system. The resulting data ecosystem is subject to local regulation by state and national laws which have often been drafted to address a conflicting set of jurisdictional rules and normative expectations regarding the creation, ownership, collection, storage and dissemination of information. The laws vary from country to country, resisting efforts at bringing international harmony because of deeply rooted historical differences. The presentation is an overview of the steps necessary for developing a comprehensive informatics regulatory system that protects privacy, telecom policy and copyright.
