Autonomous Vehicles & Privacy – Germany, EU & the U.S.

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: In part 2 of our autonomous vehicle series, Allen & Overy discusses the connection between autonomous vehicles and data privacy, a fast-growing area of the law that governs information that is linked to specific individuals.  The instructors explore the data collection capabilities of cars and the differing consumer reactions to those capabilities, including the fear of government use of the data for fines and enforcement purposes.  Will these consumer feelings drive proactive policies, like those developing in Europe, or will they lead to reactionary policies once problems are exposed.  Our instructors explore these questions along with regulatory realities in differing U.S. states.   Speakers: Catharina Glugla, Paul Keller & William Wray, Allen & Overy

Book Talk: Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Cleantech: A Pathway for Developing Countries (Joy Xiang)

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

In her book, Joy Y. Xiang promotes both global cleantech development and international cleantech transfer for climate action and sustainable development. The author proposes all countries build domestic cleantech innovation wherever possible. The book examines what it takes to build domestic cleantech innovation and outlines a pathway for developing countries to march toward it.  The pathway includes international aid, mutually beneficial international cleantech cooperation and domestic cleantech innovation. Xiang proposes that countries build domestic cleantech innovation by, for example, sending clear policy signals indicating the country’s long-term commitment toward cleantech innovation. Xiang also suggests countries employ diverse innovation tools such as customized cleantech IPR regimes, various subsidies such as prizes, innovation commons and competition law and regulations. The author observes that IP protection for cleantech is necessary for attracting international cleantech transfer. Developing countries may use available mechanisms in competition law and IP laws to address anticompetitive use of cleantech IPR.
