Abstract

Legal liability refers to a subjection to a legal obligation or the obligation itself. In the language of the law, one becomes “liable” or incurs a legal liability when one commits a wrong or breaks a contract or trust. Legal liability may be either civil or criminal according to whether it is enforced in a civil or criminal court of law. Creating, providing, and/or using geographic information (GI) may attract obligations of a legal nature. For creators, providers, and users of GI, legal liabilities may stem from a failure to fulfill or comply with the term of a written or oral agreement through to wrongful acts (torts), including the failure to act and causing another party to suffer harm, economic loss, or damage
