Bundestagswahl 2017: Who makes the data richness really rich?

Friday, September 1st, 2017 | Gadgets

Will we all be rich in a few years? In the future, if ownership of data actually exists, users' ownership would eventually increase with each networked car ride and surfing the Internet. However, the parties' concepts for data and consumer protection as well as for the exploitation of data are very different. Anyone who earns it is currently far from safe.

Although the European Data Protection Regulation will enter into force in May 2018, the issue continues to play a role at national level. For the regulations still have to be implemented in German law. Furthermore, data protection is only about personal data, which should be prevented as far as possible by the regulation. But in the future, users will be able to generate anonymous or pseudonym data with their vehicles and smartphones, which can be exploited by companies for economic purposes. A warning of black ice or the reference to a free parking space can become components of data services that can be marketed lucrative.
Who owns the autodata?
For a long time it has been discussed who owns such data. The vehicle owner, the car manufacturer or the navigation service? Should drivers be given the possibility to prevent the data transmission of their networked car at the push of a button, as the ADAC demands? According to the car industry, car drivers are required by law to provide their data for "intelligent traffic control". That would be equal to expropriation, a right to data ownership should be decided.

There are few concrete answers to the electoral programs. The most economic demands are the Union. "In the framework established by the Basic Data Protection Ordinance, we are going to develop a data law which will regulate the general access to data for economic purposes as well as powers of the security authorities and legitimate interests of the citizens".
UnionsInterner dispute over data parsity
The CSU-led transport ministry had already published a "Strategy Paper Digital Sovereignty" in March 2017, saying: "Data is not a thing in the case, and therefore can not be owned by us, so we want to equate data as a result with things, That these clearly natural or legal persons can be assigned as 'property'. " The CSU has taken up the concept in its Bavarian plan, which states that "the data and the associated rights belong to the people." In view of the CSU's industry-friendly course in the diesel industry, it seems unbelievable that the party has suddenly discovered a heart for the drivers.
It is, therefore, completely open to what the Union actually does. At least the program does not include a departure from the principle of data parsimony. This had been demanded in recent years by both Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt (CSU) and Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU). At this year's Republican conference, however, Minister of the Interior, Thomas de Maiziere (CDU), described the concept of data wealth as a "concept of struggle against the concept of data parsimony in the political debate" and as "unhelpful".
