eHealth devices are the future of healthcare, how can they deal with legal issues raised by privacy and medical devices regulations?
Here you can read some articles on Italian and international technology law issues, like Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) law issues drafted by either Giulio Coraggio or the other authors of GamingTechLaw.
Wearable technologies and the Internet of Things are becoming a really exciting topic and each time we review different products for clients, we find out an additional legal implication that might be relevant in the sector. After having published a post on wearable technologies and privacy and a second post on wearable technologies in the healthcare sector with reference to eHealth technologies, I am now running a webinar organized by the Global Lawyers Association on wearable technologies, privacy and intellectual property rights.
Wearables are facing a massive growth, but have to deal with major privacy issues that could hinder or at least delay the process.
Wearables and the Internet of Things are one of the most discussed at the moment with a considerable potential impact on our approach to technologies in the next years. But, with the huge amount of personal data relating to users as well as images/sounds on the people/events around him collected by means of such devices and the possibility to very easily share them on the Internet, the impact on privacy rights of these technologies will require a careful review.
