Abstract

This chapter summarises some of the key issues raised. Especially as error free face recognition technology and other biometric technologies have become a major pursuit for technology companies as they seek to perfect their products to satisfy commercial and government expectations. Such expectations will require justifying, since the data ecosystems are evolving, and new ways of thinking become necessary. For instance, data ownership and rights, and how the democratising of technology has started to challenge the status quo. Additionally, the right to image ownership is an issue, that like Cinderella is in need of recognition, if data protection law is to fully acknowledge the status of personal identifiable images.
