In this chapter, I address the relationship between IP and the rules adopted to govern the specific technologies that are designed to handle information—known as ‘information technologies (IT)’. This set of provisions goes under the name of ‘IT law’. I address the interface between IP and IT law from the standpoint of the IP scholars who have an interest in technology. In particular, I investigate how the IP/IT interface is, or could be regulated and how the rules regarding IP and IT law interact with each other. There is indeed a circular relationship between law and technology as the former, while governing the latter, is also shaped by it and vice versa.

Abstract

In this chapter, I address the relationship between IP and the rules adopted to govern the specific technologies that are designed to handle information—known as ‘information technologies (IT)’. This set of provisions goes under the name of ‘IT law’. I address the interface between IP and IT law from the standpoint of the IP scholars who have an interest in technology. In particular, I investigate how the IP/IT interface is, or could be regulated and how the rules regarding IP and IT law interact with each other. There is indeed a circular relationship between law and technology as the former, while governing the latter, is also shaped by it and vice versa.
