Welcome to May's E-Commerce Law & Policy
This month's issue opens with news that eBay and Google have agreed to store user data in Russia, in reaction to the forthcoming entry into force of a new Russian law requiring that the personal data of Russian users be stored on servers located in Russia.
Also in our regular news analysis section this month: the European Commission issues a Statement of Objections to Google over its shopping comparison services and alleged violations of EU antitrust law, and several broadcasters band together to take legal action against two New Zealand ISPs for offering a service which allows users to circumvent geo-blocking measures and access TV usually restricted and unavailable to New Zealand residents.
Our features this month include a look by Daniel Tozer and Rebecca Collard of Harbottle & Lewis at the rise in influence of digital assistants, such as Apple's Siri, and how in the very near future these smart device programs could impact on the e-commerce world - and create legal issues. Lorna Brazell of Osborne Clarke discusses two recent cases - TVCatchup and C More v Sandberg. And Liz Fitzsimons of Eversheds summarises changes to the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations that will affect e-marketing in the UK.
