This Post Has One Comment editor 21 Jul 2019 Log in to Reply It depends on the country in question and the individual situation. The EU has a well defined document, but only 45 countries have published their regimes so far so its a difficult situation to navigate. You may ask what is required for compliance, and the country may not know yet. A good example of the liability being situational is with GenBank data. This is an example of an agreement where it is the person using the data, not the person who collected it, who is liable. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
