Alexander Duisberg Partner @ Bird Bird, talks to the legal aspects of exploiting big data and lists his top tips for private and public sector.

He talks to :

data ownership as a concept [ personally I am not sure anyone can own data, however there are rights and responsibilities] and no jurisdiction has a fully developed concept of data ownership to date.

privacy aspect of data  understanding what data you own and how it affects your customers’ privacy.

licensing implications when buying or selling data and the issues of making data anonymous.
