Abstract

In the modern era, the right to privacy protection is facing challenges while trying to protect individual’s personal information. This thesis’ aim is to research whether personal information could be classified as property. In this case the protection of an individual’s personal information would fall within the scope of Article 1 of Protocol No.1 to the European Convention on Human Rights and not only within the scope of Article 8 of European Convention on Human Rights. In order to achieve this aim I divided up my research into three chapters starting with the scope of Article 1 of Protocol No.1 to the European Convention on Human Rights followed by a study of property rights issues on the Internet. The notion of personal information is presented from European Union point of view – Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data – followed by the study of personal information issues on the Internet. The thesis concludes with a presentation of the possible framework of a personal information market, with licensing of personal information and personal information as intellectual property classification as future solutions.
