- This paper examines the evolving tension between the open data movement and the European Union’s privacy regulations, especially the Data Protection Directive.
- The authors argue, “Technological developments and the increasing amount of publicly available data are…blurring the lines between non-personal and personal data. Open data may not seem to be personal data on first glance especially when it is anonymised or aggregated. However, it may become personal by combining it with other publicly available data or when it is de-anonymised.”
