This extensively revised and updated third edition of EU Internet Law offers a state of the art overview of the key areas of EU Internet regulation, as well as a critical evaluation of EU policy-making and governance in the field. It provides an in-depth analysis of the ways in which relevant legal instruments interact, as well as comparative discussions contrasting EU and US solutions.

Examining the constitutional context within which the Internet is regulated, and the policies that have informed this regulation over the years, Andrej Savin explores recent policy documents on illegal and harmful content online, communications on platforms and the 2020 Digital Single Market strategy, as well as further developments in the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. He also investigates key issues such as electronic commerce, jurisdiction, content regulation, intellectual property, consumer protection, criminal regulation, and recent developments in GDPR.

This third edition of EU Internet Law will be a crucial read for academics, students, and practitioners working at the intersections of the Internet, technology, and commercial, economic and information law across the EU and beyond.
Critical Acclaim
‘From the very first lines of the “Preface” until the “Way forward” addressed in the last section, this very well written book covers all main areas of EU internet law regulation, and has been a valuable source ever since the first edition, for both practicing lawyers and scholars. Andrej Savin is one of the few all-round internet law specialists, and masters uniquely the broad spectrum of internet law ranging from telecommunication law, ISP liability, cyber security, contracting, data protection, etc.’
– Arno R. Lodder, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands

‘This book by Andrej Savin is an excellent masterpiece coping with the phenomenon of “Internet law“, which has been underevaluated as its objective seems to be opaque and horizontal and does not fit into the general classification of legal areas. Savin’s aim is not to provide an in-depth analysis of EU copyright, EU privacy or EU consumer protection – rather the book tackles an overall analysis of how all the different disciplines fit together with regard to the Internet regulation and policies of the EU. Even though Savin does not claim to scrutinize every detail of legal areas that are relevant, he succeeds in writing an outstanding book which provides a thorough overview of Internet policies and regulations. The third edition takes all recent developments into account, from the forthcoming Digital Services Act to the recently adopted Digital Content Directive, as well as new decisions of the CJEU. Hence, for everybody who is interested in the development of EU Internet Law I can strongly recommend this book.’
– Gerald Spindler, University of Göttingen, Germany
