As the digital transformation of society keeps moving forward, the law with its regulatory concerns seems to get increasingly left behind. Scientific diagnoses suggest that in the medium to long term, the law as we know it may not be capable of retaining its constitutionally guaranteed prerogative of interpretation regarding the weighting and offsetting of societal and individual interests. A portent of such developments may possibly be seen in the ever-increasing number of so-called «ethical» regulatory programs that have been published by domestic and international state-run and private organisations. A short legal analysis.
