Welcome to October's edition of E-Commerce Law & Policy
This month's issue begins with analysis of two major decisions related to data protection - the Advocate General's verdict in the Schrems case, shortly to be judged by the CJEU - and the CJEU's decision in the Weltimmo case. Both of these cases are important as both could have large-scale implications for e-commerce businesses and international businesses in general. We speak to legal experts who give their view on the potential eventual consequences of both cases.
In amongst our feature articles this month is a look by Feyo Sickinghe and Frank Simons of Bird & Bird at the European Commission's recently launched consultation on electronic communication networks, which analyses the current regulatory framework and considers possible reform for, among other things, over-the-tiop services in the EU.
Elsewhere, Mark Brennan and Katherine Gasztonyi of Hogans Lovells in the US report on the latest decision in the FTC v. Wyndham case, in which the Appeals Court has sided with the FTC and upheld the FTC's authority over Wyndham's cyber security practices.
PLUS: More EC consultations in the news - Hamburg's DPA on Facebook's naming policy - Canada's decision that its ISPs must open high-speed networks - an in-detail discussion on the Advocate General's Schrems verdict - the ASA targets children's apps in the UK - implications of Russia's recently enacted media and information laws.
