This article focuses on the governance of data piracy, which, it explains, includes a complex web of regulation, self-regulation, and technology at the national and transnational levels, which interact to manage how personal information may be used and shared in and across modern societies. It lays out the principle underpinnings of data-privacy regulations, how regulatory systems differ across countries, and the broader governance tools available. The article also considers the politics of privacy regulation, and identifies new challenges and emerging trends in data-privacy governance.
