Гражданско-правовые аспекты регулирования оборота данных в условиях попыток формирования цифровой экономики

This article is devoted to the analysis of existing civil law norms and case law applicable to the regulation of commercialization of datasets as one of the potentially most significant assets in the digital economy. The article provides a definition of a dataset and considers its possible place in the system of civil rights objects, as well as the likelyhood of qualification as a database, know-how, services, or “other property”. It is concluded that it is impossible to adequately regulate and protect datasets within the above mentioned legal regimes, both due to existing problems in definitions and because of their incompatibility with the essence of relations arising from the collection and processing of data. The article also discusses the relationship between the civil law and legislation on personal data in the commercialization of datasets associated with individuals, as well as the legislative trends in this area.
