Will Legal Issues Hinder Cloud Computing

The buzz word of cloud computing has been around for several years now. The legal issues circling around the technology has let down several service organizations and dedicated product makers. The issues pertaining to data security and ownership are still in no man’s land. For instance, if you are a citizen of country Y and while travelling to country X, accessing a feature on which is forbidden in the country then ideally you should get no service intimation. Such instances and many other scenarios draw legal attention. There are other finer scenarios where cloud computing is associated with data theft and trespassing activities too.

Although the data stored over the cloud interface belongs to the subscriber but in reality control is lost by the user as soon as he or she moves out of the secured network. Also, there is no law that documents the standardized charges to be levied on the users who access these prime solutions. Certain vendors impose sky high price rates on time-based usage while others keep it well within the reach.

The cloud based solutions are in the news almost every other day and gadget giant, Apple too has announced iCloud services for its users. But, the viable benefit is yet to be realized by the end users in mass. Only a dedicated set of IT services providers  and their customers have gained from the concept of cloud computing at large.
