Improve legal outcomes by marking your data with labels
As the laws governing data become more complex, the placement of labels on data helps to achieve compliance and desired legal outcomes. A label is any kind of legal statement of rules or ownership associated with data.
ANALOGY TO SIGNS ON LAND HELP US TO UNDERSTAND LABELS ON DATA
A label on data can be like a No Trespassing sign on land. It is a statement that informs observers of a legal claim. Just because someone puts a label – or a No Trespassing sign – on something does not mean the label or sign is correct or enforceable. Anyone can put a No Trespassing sign on land, even if they have no rights to the land.
