In this eighth article in our series on “Big Data & Issues & Opportunities” (https://2bird.ly/2EaVNDK), we look into liability issues in the context of new technologies, including with respect to big data, applied in the transport sector. More particularly, we examine the contractual, extra-contractual and statutory liability and safety regimes, as well as the limitation of liability for intermediaries and the liability aspects of the draft Directive on the supply of digital content.
