InfoSoc is a project launched by the Law Department of Bournemouth University and inspired by the landmark research of Professor Roger Brownsword. The idea is to map the landscape of contemporary informational interests and to evaluate a range of recognised and putative rights and wrongs associated with modern ‘information societies’. The aim of the InfoSoc Research Seminars is to inquire into, analyse and further understand the landscape of informational rights and wrongs and their corresponding regulatory requirements.
