It has significance in area of scientific innovations, information processing, knowledge sharing, decision making, research activity, services, business activities, education, employment, law, governance etc. Almost no field is untouched from receiving benefits technological advancements. The coin has other side too! Technology can be a bad master. It may be used in a manner which can pose threat to fundamental human rights or defeat the purpose for which it was relied on. These threats are not restricted to particular field but has possibility of adverse implications on almost all the areas where technology is relevant.
As reliance on Information Communication Technology increases day by day it becomes even more significant to assess the legality and validity of technology assisting and influencing human conduct. Technology should never become tool or target to violate Law of the Land. In the wake of Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Robotics, Virtual Reality, convergence of technologies newer challenges are being posed in terms of determining the legit standards to which these technological advancements may be used. Block chain technology enables to create crypto currency but whether to recognize it as legal tender or not still looms large. Social media with enabled by communication technology is threatened by privacy risks.
Law ought to govern technological advancements despite it being difficult to govern something which at times behaves as an unruly horse. Technology changes every passing day and law has to catch upon. Information Technology Act 2000 though was one of the premier attempts to regulate technology was knee jerk reaction to the demand of regulating information technology. I T Amendment Act of 2008 and allied Rules Regulations tried to do away with inherent deficiencies in Information Technology. As a matter of fact law in itself won’t suffice or achieve desired results unless people are aware of the exact nature and functioning of information communication technology and the law regulating it. Electronic evidences though are valid and legal they need to be handled and produced before court of law in a manner that they remain legally admissible, accessing a particular data may end up in committing an offence if the assesse is unauthorized person, an image in communication device of which the user had no idea of existence may land up him in prison despite throughout remaining honest in his/her conduct, Digital economy in aftermath of demonetization is good move by credit card frauds are yet to be effectively tackled. Technical terms/language used in law governing Information Technology adds to the misery of layman and at times even to professionals.
