HTS - Internet of Things and Mobile and Consumer Electronics Subcommittees Webinar: Data Licensing
Large-scale data collection occurs every day through computer-mediated transactions (CMTs), IoT devices, software telemetry, and numerous other sources. Data is critical to, among other things, the development of artificial intelligence and predictive analytics. Every company (not just large tech companies) needs to understand how to license data in and out of its organization. The session will provide an overview of intellectual property and contractual protection available for data (data bases). The session will also provide an overview of data use agreements including the Creative Commons licenses, Open Data Commons licenses, and private industry proposals. Legal mechanisms for properly collecting data will be mentioned but a discussion of data privacy and security is not intended.
