The digital world has evolved and become a full-fledged ecosystem where humans play an active role. Human lives have been digitally broadened to the point of resulting in the duplication of individuals in cyberspace and the creation of a cyber-self. People’s freedom is put into question in this space as it presents the risk of loss in personal autonomy. Consequently, life in cyberspace has undeniable repercussions on individuals and their personality which are manifested beyond the confines of the digital world.

Cyberspace has also allowed for the development of new players whose rights have yet to be defined by law. An issue which arises is whether, for example, a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) or an artificial intelligence (AI) can be granted a legal personality. If this were the case, the scope of their legal personality and the their rights must be precisely defined, whilst taking in to consideration the place that these digital beings have in our society.
