Digital Economy and Emerging Issues of Law

Digital Economy and Emerging Issues of Law

The practice of law administration and understanding of problems in the field of regulation of digital technologies is moving to a new stage. Technology is overtaking us at an incredible speed, and the rules of the “classic” legal structures are not always applicable to new relationships. Blockchain, BigData, artificial intelligence (AI) integrate into the daily business processes of companies and government, raising many legal issues. Civil, labor, financial legislation, legislation on judicial proceedings, enforcement proceedings, legislation on notaries, information, legislation in the field of intellectual property, etc. need adaptation.

The legal community is particularly focused on regulating the circulation of digital rights and digital financial assets. The FATF mission expects Russia to resolve the use of cryptocurrencies, and the bill on digital financial assets is currently under consideration by the State Duma of the Russian Federation.
