The latest issue of E-Commerce Law Reports
In our latest issue, we look at some ground-breaking decisions in e-commerce case law from the last quarter of 2014; firstly the UK High Court's ruling in Cartier Montblanc and Richemont v. BskyB, BT, TalkTalk, EE and Virgin, in which a blocking order was granted to force internet service providers to block websites infringing trademarks by selling and advertising counterfeit goods, the first order of its kind. Another highlight includes Argentina's Supreme Court of Justice's decision in Maria Belen Roderiguez v. Google and Other, which ruled on the liability of search engines for material online that infringes the reputation and privacy of individuals. Another first comes from the US in the case Ingrid & Isabel, LLC v. Baby Be Mine, LLC, which saw a California Court find that the 'look and feel' of a website can be protectable as trade dress.
The issue also covers a large range of other topics and jurisdictions, including the first enforcement action in Canada involving the anti-spam law, AdWords litigation in South Africa, the BestWater CJEU order and the FCC's move to fine two telecommunications companies for failing to protect customer data.
