Legal interoperability emerges as a
specific facet of organizational interoperability and addresses the
politic, legal, social and policy barriers that currently hinder
the successful application of interoperability at all levels. Such
barriers are associated with privacy and personal data protection,
authentication and identification, intellectual property rights,
freedom of information, content regulation, public administration
transparency, e-commerce, trade practices etc. and impose legal
rules, which have to be taken into account when developing
interoperability policies and frameworks.
The Greek Interoperability Centre
addresses legal interoperability in terms of legal and business
rules extraction, modeling, execution and management and carries
out research towards the development and adoption of rule-based
systems and interoperability-related legal bases.
