Critical Acclaim
‘Careful, thoughtful, and thorough, The EU Geo-Blocking Regulation is a definitive contribution from the world''s leading authority on geo-blocking. This book should be an essential reference for lawyers advising clients considering geo-blocking, and for scholars seeking to understand the Regulation and the complex issues it raises.’
– James Grimmelmann, Cornell Law School and Cornell Tech, US

‘In this book, the leading legal scholar on geo-blocking issues provides readers with much more than an article-by-article commentary on the EU Geo-Blocking Regulation. Trimble describes the technical and economic context and addresses the complex interactions between the Regulation and other areas of law, such as competition and copyright. The book sets a new gold standard for the legal analysis of geo-blocking.’
– Alexander Peukert, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
