Title
Legal aspects of text mining
Author
Abstract
"Text mining" covers a range of techniques that allow software to extract information from text documents. It is not a new technology, but it has recently received spotlight attention due to the emergence of Big Data. The applications of text mining are very diverse and span multiple disciplines, ranging from biomedicine to legal, business intelligence and security. From a legal perspective, text mining touches upon several areas of law, including contract law, copyright law and database law. This contribution discusses the legal issues encountered during the assembly of texts into so-called "corpora", as well as the use of such corpora. (C) 2014 Maarten Truyens & Patrick Van Eecke.
