Taken from the briefing Legal Issues in Agricultural Data:  Ownership, Use, Privacy and Security recorded March, 2017 in New York.

The United Nations predicts that food production must increase by 70% in the next 35 years to meet increasing demand. New technologies are emerging to solve the problem of increased food production, many of which technologies use big data, deep learning and AI to reduce inputs, increase outputs or increase production yields. As the agricultural industry adopts these technologies, producers and agricultural technology providers (ATPs) must address the legal questions and potential liabilities arising out of the collection, storage and use of data. The equipment used in food production is now heavily software driven, also implicating copyright law. Farmers and ATPs now face legal issues such as privacy, compliance, security, use and ownership.

Many ATPs are finding that the agricultural industry differs from other industries when it comes to data. Producers tend to view their data as proprietary, and farm groups have proposed data standards. Many ATPs have crafted their own data standards, which conflict with some farmers’ traditional notions of ownership. As a result, anyone practicing in the area should have knowledge of the law applicable to technology, information and data and the unique issues in agriculture that require attention.

Listen to Roger Royse, Heidi Klein and Satya Narayan of Royse Law Firm, PC discuss the legal issues that arise when farmers buy tech data products for use in food production.
