Abstract

The technologies of law and of law enforcement are changing. This chapter explores the political, legal, and technical viability of deploying automated privacy enforcement technologies at web-scale for the sake of protecting individuals from automated surveillance and profiling. Through investigating technologies for the automation of privacy protection, the chapter describes the legal and political consequences of replicating legal norms in automated technological systems and its inconsistency with traditional understandings of legality. However, it also argues that properly regulating the contemporary socio-technical milieu may require a more plural understand of legal nature in order for legal systems to adequately protect individuals.

Keywords: Privacy Law, Data Protection, Legal Theory, Surveillance Studies
