28. Data Product Usage Contract

A legally binding agreement made by and between a Data Provider and a Data Consumer specifying the terms and conditions of a data exchange.

The Data Product Usage Contract is a Ricardian contract: a contract at law that is both human-readable and machine-readable, cryptographically signed and rendered tamper-proof, verifiable in a decentralized fashion, and electronically linked to the subject of the contract, i.e., the data. The parties can (optionally) request this contract to be notarized in a federated Data Product Usage Contract Store.
