Özet: In September 2017 the 18th Fall Academy of the German Foundation for Law and Informatics2 on “Law 4.0 – Innovations from legal laboratories” took place in Heidelberg/Germany. In app. 50 presentations recent developments and problems in the field of Information Technology Law were explained and then discussed with app. 300 participants. The conference focused on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), especially on how the new requirements stemming from the GDPR can be implemented, e.g. with respect to data protection organisation, the right to data portability, the processing of data on behalf of a controller, international data transfers and the processing of health data for medical (research) purposes. Another focus of the conference was on the legal problems of the (increasing) automation, e.g. with respect to the use of bots and ledger tech/blockchain applications. In this context, the speakers dealt escpecially with contractual, liability, consumer protection, competition and intellectual property law issues. After a (short) introduction to the EU data protection law, this conference report focuses on selected presentations that were given at the Fall Academy. All in all, the Fall Academy was (again) a very successfull conference, especially due to the high number of excellent and interesting presentations, so that the Fall Academy is highly recommended for all lawyers interested in Information Technology Law.
