Welcome to November's edition of E-Commerce Law & Policy
In the aftermath of both the Schrems ruling by the CJEU, and another key ruling of the EU's highest court in the Weltimmo decision, those dealing with privacy and data transfers will find plenty of interest in November's edition of the journal. Dr Christian Schroder and Kolvin Stone of Orrick explain exactly what the CJEU has said and what this means for the EU-US Safe Harbor - and the alternatives for legal data transfers - in their lead article, while Stephen Groom of Osborne Clarke provides analysis of the Weltimmo verdict and what it represents for data compliance across the EU.
Another major development, also at an European level, has been the adoption in late October of the 'net neutrality' regulations by the European Parliament. We report in our news commentary section on how four amendments designed to close 'loopholes' in the regulation were voted down, drawing widespread criticism, while Feyo Sickinghe of Bird & Bird discusses the regulation in an article.
PLUS: Amazon sues Fiverr users - the TalkTalk breach and compliance questions - the Electronic Frontier Foundation's new DNT policy - domain names and the subsistence of property - Poland asks the CJEU about e-book VAT - Germany seeks to amend its Telemedia Act - the OECD considers taxing the cloud.
