Abstract

Law is the strongest tool to uphold justice and equality, and the ultimate goal of legislation is realizing the value and purpose of law. In recent years, many new legal issues have emerged worldwide due to the rapid development of modern digital technology. Many people are put at a disadvantage situation in society because they cannot adapt to new technologies, and their legal rights cannot be protected equally by current law. Specifically, COVID-19 pandemic accelerates the digitalization of society, thus lots of people are calling for legislation to guarantee citizens’ equal rights in such a digitalized world. This paper provides an analysis of some legal issues brought out by new digital technologies and offers possible legislative solutions. The legislature, as well as the government, should make new rules for both tech giants and the public to defend our constitutional equal rights.
