Codified knowledge
Recorded data, information or knowledge. Because it is codified, it is more easily defined, collated and transferred. In the context of legal work, the codification of knowledge makes it easier to deal with for the purpose of legal risk management advice. The codification of knowledge also makes it generally easier to protect it by applying intellectual property law, whether that involve confidential information law, copyright law, employment law, contract law or a combination of these or other areas of law.
