Vinge at the forefront of cloud services

March 28, 2011

The cloud is predicted as the next major IT revolution. Vinge’s IP & Technology practice group participated at the IT fair, Easy Fairs in Kista and gave a presentation concerning the legal and regulatory requirements governing the new technology.

Cloud computing, which is also referred to as the Cloud or Computer Cloud, provides new possibilities for cheaper, more flexible and more powerful data management. The technology is based on the fact that processor power, storage of data and functions are provided as services on the Internet.

“Many people think that the IT industry’s business models will be radically changed within the next few years,” says Eva Fredrikson, a partner in Vinge’s IP & Technology practice group.

Cloud Sweden

Nicklas Thorgerzon, IT specialist, and Björn Gustavsson, partner in Vinge’s IP & Technology practice group, both actively participate in Cloud Sweden, a group within the Swedish Information Processing Society which has prepared, among other things, the first of several best practice checklists for buyers of various cloud services.

Nicklas Thorgerzon participated at the IT fair, Easy Fairs, in Kista on 16 March 2011 where he and other representatives of Cloud Sweden described the legal issues which arise in conjunction with the use of cloud services.

Important issues

There is a significant interest in cloud services and Vinge’s IP & Technology practice group has participated in various conferences and held several seminars in relation to the legal and regulatory requirements governing cloud services.

“In conjunction with the procurement of a cloud service it is important to specifically regulate provisions relating to security copying, access to data and processing of personal data”, says Björn Gustavsson.

Björn Gustavsson is also a member of the group which has been mandated by the Swedish Bar Association to prepare recommendations for the use of cloud services by law firms.

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
