The Slovak Spectator asked these lawyers about which laws the parliament should recodify:
- Michal Kohn, Senior Associate at RUŽIČKA AND PARTNERS;

- Marián Lauko, Senior Associate at PETERKA & PARTNERS;
- Miriam Galandová (Partner) and Matej Kačaljak (Candidate Attorney) from PRK Partners;
- Ján Piešťanský, Attorney at Škubla & Partneri;
- Monika Kormošová (Attorney) and Andrea Erbenová (Senior Attorney) of SOUKENÍK - ŠTRPKA.
The Slovak Spectator: Which legislative areas or laws need further revision and why?
Michal Kohn: One area that is missing complex and clear legislation is digital media and social networks. With their increasing importance, which can exceed the impact of traditional communication platforms (like radio, TV and print media) soon, it is necessary to think about setting at least the basic framework for their operation.
Although anonymity and missing regulations have been a driving force for the quick development of the online world for years, providers of these platforms currently use these aspects to avoid responsibility or paying taxes, observing legal duties or to spread fake news. It is necessary to clarify relations among subjects active in the digital world and define their responsibilities. The regulation of registering, processing and trading “data” by multinational companies offering services within online platforms will be a separate chapter.
Andrej Leontiev: The unique anti-shell law was adopted two years ago.
