Track: 9. Private Law
Aiming to ensure that positive law meets the digital age challenges, the legislative regulation of technology-mediated social relations is developing rapidly. The first few decades of the development of the Internet and other digital technologies and their increasing involvement in socially meaningful areas were marked by an absence of consistent legal regulation apart from individual matters (for one, the liability of information intermediaries under the copyright law). By contrast, in recent years, we have observed a trend for positive law overflowing with a considerable number of rules aimed at regulating multiple, diverse and highly specific relations stemming from the distribution of information in the digital form and other types of relations in the digital environment. In other words, legal gaps (or cases of qualified omission) have been replaced by an overflow of regulations. How could we interpret the existing approaches in terms of the theory of law? What issues of legal regulation are the most relevant? And finally, what solutions does the theory of law suggest?
