Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The growing development of the technology sector has caused a significant growth in the Big Data markets. As, a disruptive technology, Big Data poses serious legal challenges, especially regarding Intellectual Property Law. With this study, we seek to understand to what extent the databases arising from Big Data are (un)protected by current legislation. In particular, we will assess the applicability of the Directive on the protection of databases in the context of Big Data.
