Private International Law Online

Internet Regulation and Civil Liability in the EU

Tobias Lutzi

Oxford Private International Law Series

  • Applies private international law doctrine to assess the effectiveness of the framework of EU regulation of liability for online activities.
  • Addresses not only well-known problems that have extensively been discussed in the relevant literature, but also engages with more recent phenomena such as the increasingly important role of private intermediaries.
  • Addresses the recent controversial judgment by the European Court of Justice, Glawischnig-Piesczek v Facebook, and the wider implications of the EU's move towards a 'Digital Single Market'.
  • Includes a proposal for a new, coherent approach to the regulation of digital commerce, based on the individual parties engaging in online activities, their legitimate expectations, and the resulting liability risks.
