Technology Law deals with legal issues concerning how-to-control new technical inventions. A distinction needs to be made between IP Law that mainly enforces the development of new technology, Security Law that diminishes the risks and Liability Rules that mainly consist of codes of conduct.
Current research focus:
- liability for new technologies (e.g. self-driving vehicles) including dogamtic principles (codes of conduct),
- the role of trade secrets,
- questions on the subject of modern Technology Law (Technology Law 4.0).
