Информационное право. 2016. № 1 (47). С. 39-46.

This paper presents a review of the main events of the Fourth International summer school on cyber law (ISSC), organized by Research laboratory on information law of the HSE. Although some aspects of law in the digital age are the subject of debate both in the professional legal community and in society in general, modern science lacks a more comprehensive study of the cyber law as a distinctive social phenomenon. Consequently, the purpose of recent paper is to eliminate those gaps in the examination.

Currently, the main method of studying this institute is the analysis of separate branches and sub-branches of public law and intellectual property rights. Moreover, the analysis of specific problems is limited by the current legislation of the governments and their associations.

On the contrary, such international summer school helps researchers from various areas and countries to share experiences, to categorize global trends and, thus, to summarize the common political and legal framework of the regulation of cyber law in different jurisdictions. The program of the summer school included the most topical research trends in the field of information law and intellectual property rights, reviewed new problems and offered possible solutions. Among the guests of the school there were representatives of IBM, Yandex, MegaFon, Wargaming.net, Baker&McKenzie, as well as professors of foreign universities and research centers.

The framework of the ISSC started a discussion for the legal aspects of developing and implementing information technology, legal regulation in the field of online video games, novels of the Russian legislation, current issues in telecommunications and copyright law, as well as other problems of the IT/IP sphere.

This year applications for participation in the School came from the USA, Brazil, Portugal, Belgium, Slovakia, Italy, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Armenia, as well as different cities of Russia.

In this paper the authors will present the main results and benefits of the discussions held within the school.
