The Internet has brought about unprecedented changes to modern life, creating a connected society but also radically opening up the question of how to design and apply legal rules in a connected world. This innovative Handbook provides an overview of the latest developments and controversies in European Internet law.

The Handbook questions the extent to which the Internet forces us to rethink existing legal concepts and institutions. It includes sections that correspond to the most disputed areas, looking consecutively at policy and governance, copyright, private international law, e-commerce, consumer protection and citizens and their position on the Internet. By highlighting the challenges that European law and policy-makers face when attempting to regulate the Internet, this Handbook raises important issues regarding free speech, accessibility and privacy.

This timely Handbook will be of interest to academics and postgraduate students specializing in international law, e-commerce, consumer law and IT law. It will also be a useful reference tool for practitioners, including governmental officials and data protection officers.
