COMPLIANCE FOR SERVICE BASED SYSTEMS THROUGH FORMALIZATION OF LAW

Christian Baumann, Paul Peitz, Oliver Raabe, Richard Wacker

Abstract

As with the advancement in Web-based infrastructures applications can be composed of services by different providers across the Internet, it is not possible to foresee legal requirements for every situation. Therefore, new legal challenges arise for modular applications in an Internet of Services. However, since such service based systems become more and more self describing by using sophisticated description schemas, we propose to apply standard legal methodology on this situation. By formalizing legal norms and the process of legal assessment to obtain legal rights and obligations we envision an autarchic system which can subsume service description facts under the terms of legal regulations in order to obtain legal consequences. This paper contributes the scientific concept to transfer legal methodology, as known in the offline world for decades, to a distributed and modular online business world, which composes its applications dynamically with services from different providers.
