It then introduces a new distinction between soft ethics, which applies after legal compliance with legislation, such as the General Data Protection regulation in the European Union, and hard ethics, which precedes and contributes to shape legislation. It concludes by developing an analysis of the role of digital ethics with respect to digital regulation and digital governance.
