Critical Acclaim
‘EU Regulation of E-Commerce: A Commentary is an invaluable resource for researchers and students interested in the regulation of digital environments. This edited volume contains an impressive range of scholars, and depth of analysis. In a fast-moving field, this volume covers the most important European directives and regulations dealing with subjects that range from copyright to consumer protection. The editors are some of the most recognised scholars in the field, and this is a valuable addition to any library.’
– Andres Guadamuz, University of Sussex, UK

‘This is an important contribution to understanding the most important policy objective of the European Union: the growth of a safe and secure, trustworthy, and legally accountable framework for transactional e-Commerce, that respects not only fundamental rights but the private rights of stakeholders. An excellent range of contributors offers chapters, not only about the ex-ante rules and protections available for consumers, rightsholders, and the supply of digital content but the range of ex-post remedies and enforcement mechanisms available in the EU.''
– Mark Leiser, Leiden University, the Netherlands
