The modern world has been subject to information and communication technology penetration at an unprecedented level. While the early battles over Internet regulation have largely subsided, the debate around who regulates and when, remains strong. In a thoroughly revised second edition of this well-regarded book, Andrej Savin provides a detailed overview of EU Internet regulation in all its key areas, as well as giving a critical evaluation of EU policy-making and governance.

This new edition covers the latest developments in the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union, covering the multitude of issues that have recently been considered by the Court. It also discusses pending proposals in telecommunications, copyright and privacy laws as well as the new regulatory directions signalled by the Commission’s 2015 strategy document. The book begins with a detailed examination of the constitutional context within which the Internet is regulated and the various policy documents that have informed this regulation over the years. It then examines key issues in Internet regulation, including electronic commerce, jurisdiction, content regulation, intellectual property, consumer protection, and criminal regulation.

The EU has played a crucial role in Internet regulation in Member States and occupies a unique position of global influence in this fast-evolving area of governance. EU Internet Law will be of interest to academics, students, and practitioners across the EU and beyond.

Distinguished by its clear and practical approach, this book provides an accessible and absorbing read certainly for lawyers, students, researchers and indeed journalists as well as – actually – anyone who uses the Internet either as a recreation, or as a tool for business and who is interested in the evolving legal landscape which impacts upon it.’
