BLOCKCHAIN LAW – A PRIMER

BLOCKCHAIN LAW – A PRIMER


We all have been hearing much about Blockchain these days. Experts tell us that this new game changing technology is going to change the way we do activities in the digital and mobile ecosystem.

The adoption of Blockchain brings with it a large number of legalities. Various legal, policy and regulatory issues, which the widespread adoption of Blockchain technology brings forth, need to be appropriately addressed.

This Book is a primer on some of the more significant and important legal, policy and regulatory issues concerning Blockchains. This Book aims to be a starting point for discussions, deliberations and analysis by relevant thought leaders on how the varied legal and regulatory challenges facing Blockchain technologies as a whole need to be appropriately addressed.

This Book seeks to look at the legalities concerning Blockchains in various areas of human activities, analyze the liability of Blockchain service providers, and other issues like data privacy and intellectual property rights. The challenges of jurisdiction brought forward by the Blockchain technology presents some interesting facets which require appropriate analysis and deliberations. Number of legalities concerning Blockchains have not yet even been identified.

This Book would give a brief view of the emerging legal landscape that Blockchain stakeholders are likely to face in the coming times, given the radical changes made by Blockchains in various areas of human activities. These changes are further challenging the way principles of legal jurisprudence need to be made applicable in the emerging Blockchain paradigm.

I believe that this Book could be of immense value to not just to lawyers, legal professionals, students, law professors, jurists, legal officers but also for all other stakeholders in the Blockchain ecosystem. This eBook would also be of value for every stakeholder in the digital and mobile ecosystem who wants to understand the legal nuances and complexities concerning Blockchains.
