This year we were once again able to welcome new members to the L3S. Prof. Dr. Maximilian Becker joined the L3S in May.
Maximilian Becker has held the Chair of Data Protection Law and IT Law at the Institute for Legal Informatics (IRI) since 2019. Previously, he was Junior Professor of Civil Law and Intellectual Property Law at the University of Siegen. His research focuses on IT law, intellectual property and data law (data protection law and data business law). The subject of his post-doctoral thesis on "Absolute Herrschaftsrechte" (to be published in 2021) was the development of a uniform model of property-like rights, which at the same time explains them as rights to information. Other recent research focuses include the position of human freedom in automated environments and especially technical law enforcement, the economic exploitation of personal data via CMP on websites, and the adaptation of copyright law to digitalisation and the platform economy.
Welcome to L3S!
