AbstractThe Internet of things (IoT) can be perceived as a far-reaching vision with technological and societal implications. In simple terms, IoT boils down to convergence in the sense of technology and people coming together or merging. In legal terms, this IoT convergence has parallels in concepts such as accession, commixture, confusion and comingling. These legal concepts have broadly speaking, the same application within the context of property law, where property law includes real property such as land, moveable property such as chattels or things (including human tissue), and tangible and intangible property (intellectual property).
