On 4 July 2017, David Erdos spoke on ‘Data protection law liability and user generated content: Ways forward under the GDPR’ at the Privacy Laws & Business 30th Annual International Conference (3 – 5 July 2017). The conference aimed to provide a forum to discuss conflicts between innovation and privacy and find solutions to these conflicts.
David’s presentation, at a session chaired by Elizabeth Denham, UK Information Commissioner, considered the conflicts between data protection and freedom of expression, particularly in the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The presentation examined potential good practices by organisations in facing the challenges arising from data protection duties. This is within the context of a field where data is increasingly user-generated content and contains both user and third party data, bringing “intermediary” shield provision in e-commerce law into play.
