Welcome to August's edition of E-Commerce Law & Policy
Following the beginning of trilogue discussions around the EU General Data Protection Regulation in June, the journal features this month an in-depth look at how businesses can now prepare for the forthcoming changes to data protection law across Europe. The article - by Philip James and Stefano Debolini of Sheridans - breaks down the areas of development, such as consent and sanctions, and advises businesses to act now to prepare.
Our news analysis section this month reports on plans put forward by the UK Government for HM Revenues & Customs to gain extended powers to request data from online intermediaries, among others, in order to combat the 'hidden economy'. Plus - Russia enacts its own 'right to be forgotten,' and Spain refers questions about Uber to the CJEU.
Stephan Manuel Nagel and Didem Dogan of Taylor Wessing discuss elsewhere the contents of a special report by the German Monopolies Commission and its application to online advertising and the competition issues raised by this sector.
PLUS: Lufthansa's surcharging policy drws criticism - an opinion on the Digital Single Market Strategy - new data breach notification requirements in the Netherlands - the UK's private copying exception is quashed in court.
