Welcome to E-Commerce Law & Policy.
Since 1999, we’ve been on the cutting edge, providing essential analysis and commentary on the issues that matter to online businesses as the internet rapidly evolves around us, issues such as copyright, sales tax, net neutrality and data protection.
It’s on the latter subject that our latest edition begins – with analysis of the EU Parliament’s approval of the draft Data Protection Regulation. But we soon explore less charted territory with the journal’s first article on the regulation of Bitcoin – a digital currency that’s now accepted by some online retailers including Overstock.com.
Elsewhere, compliance pointers from Fasken Martineau in Toronto on Canada’s ‘anti-spam’ law, analysis of Spain’s so-called ‘Google’ news aggregation tax from Grau & Angulo law firm, and two quite opposite opinions on the draft EU Common Sales Law from Field Fisher Waterhouse and Wragge & Co respectively.
Plus – US changes its role in the internet, the OECD releases a discussion on digital tax challenges, Shanghai’s Free Trade Zone opens up to internet businesses from abroad, an EU Directive tackles online music copyright, Google try to pacify the EC over search, and we ask four experts in four jurisdictions about cybersecurity measures.
