One of the most exciting discussions that can be held today concerning #COVID19 is about the (positive?) impact that innovation within this context will have on our economy and society, on a short, medium, and long term. We are all concerned about the day after, and how the pandemic will affect our lives and our rights. But this situation also presents itself as the perfect hotbed for promoting a massive innovative activity that will undoubtedly introduce new scenarios of opportunity for companies and society with all that has been learned during this crisis.
Last Thursday, April 16, our Of Counsel, José Carlos Erdozain participated in the online meeting of experts in innovation and IP, organized by our firm in collaboration with INNOVADORES by Inndux with Adolfo Plasencia and Eugenio Mallol. They discussed privacy and data use in a context where innovation could not be explained without today’s algorithms that process an enormous volume of information per second, to solve the major problems of our society, including #COVID19.
According to our Of Counsel, “time, balance and intensity of data use are key to assessing whether we are using data legitimately and whether there is legal coverage thereof. Personal data processing must also be minimized and, of course, anonymized. Finally, and no less importantly, we must bear in mind that we must provide the citizens with legal guarantees to ensure that they are not going to be used by third parties for purposes other than those originally intended”.
