Data Sharing Requires a Data Commons Framework Law

Parminder Jeet Singh and Anita Gurumurthy co-authored a policy brief titled, ‘Data Sharing Requires a Data Commons Framework Law’, based on the paper 'Data and Digital Intelligence Commons'. The paper examined the current non-governance of aggregate non-personal data, and presented a new approach that involves treating a large part of such data as a ‘common pool resource’. It was published as part of the Data Governance Network project. This policy brief summarizes the arguments made in the paper and takes them forward to propose a concrete policy option; of developing a framework law for protecting and sharing the common resource of aggregate non-personal data.
