Digital Intellectual Property & Law


With UCA Faculty of Law


The digitalization of society raises new concerns related to property (data property, intellectual property) and calls for new regulations to define the framework for future digital data and services exploitation protecting both citizens and companies.

This course covers three Law topics related to Intellectual Property and Digitalization: personal data protection, intellectual property law and Internet sales law.

Personal data protection

The collection, processing and exploitation of data is at the heart of the digitalization of commercial and civil exchanges. This new reality is at the origin of new rights and obligations, including the entry into force of the General Regulation on Data Protection in Europe (GDPR). This part of the course is intended to draw up an inventory of current regulations in this area and its practical consequences for companies.

Intellectual Property law (software production law, copyright, open source)

The development of IT, with its new developments (AI, Blockchain, smart contract), is at the heart of technological innovation. These technologies can be considered as property objects for the benefit of their creators. This part of the course is intended to reveal the mechanisms of intellectual property and, more specifically, those dedicated to the protection of digital innovations.

Internet law (online sales, domain names, concurrency)

The dematerialization of trade is at the heart of economic development in the 21st century. This new reality, unavoidable, upsets the standards of contractual relationships and competitive positioning strategies. This part of the course is targeting students who are keen to master the fundamentals of the regulations applicable to online sales, to the management and the protection of domain names.
