The law, data protection and copyright

In this lesson, we will further exercise our knowledge about data protection and clarify the definition of the word 'stakeholder' and examples of impact that a specific technology has had on them. We will then learn about the relationship between data protection, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the right to be forgotten. Finally, we will learn about copyright, Creative Commons licensing and comparing open source and proprietary software.
