29th IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal Roundtable: Controlling the Eyes in the Sky: Preventing Abuse of Space Data, Toronto, Canada, IAC 2014, 29 September-03rd October 2014

With the increasingly high resolution of space EO data, combined moreover with increasing location and navigation information provided by satellites, new questions arise regarding the risks and threaks of abuse of such data, for example in areas of privacy, human rights and public order (terrorism).
This concerns in particular the governments regulating, controlling and often even themselves undertaking such space activities but also, increasingly, private operators who undertake them, either for the governments or for their own private gain. Clearly, regulations, mechanisms and concepts to counteract such risks, both legally and technically/operationally, exist, but their usage is not necessarily beyond discussion. Which technical measures and which legal instruments would be suitable to realistically safeguard future use of space EO data? What would be the possibilities as well as the effects of introducing, for example, 'firewalls', 'informed consent', or the 'criminalization' of leaking data in a comprehensive manner into these space sectors?
The 2014 IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal Roundtable is to address this issue from an interdisciplinary perspective.
