The new knowledge and its applications are bound to give rise to legal questions. The purpose of this article is to provide an insight into the legal questions that arise as a consequence of the developments described above. In order to gain a first understanding of the questions that have already been raised, the laws in Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States have been studied. Furthermore, it has been investigated whether these questions exhibit a need for legal intervention. In this respect the authors have discerned four themes that may serve as a basis for structuring the discussion about intervention.
