The modern world has been subject to information and communication technology penetration at an unprecedented level. While the early battles over Internet regulation have largely subsided, debate around who regulates and when remains strong.

In a thoroughly revised second edition of this well-regarded book, Andrej Savin provides a detailed overview of EU internet regulation in all its key areas, as well as giving a critical evaluation of EU policymaking and governance.

This new edition covers latest developments in the case law of the Court of Justice, covering the multitude of issues that have recently been considered by the Court. It also discusses pending proposals in telecommunications, copyright and privacy laws as well as the new regulatory directions signalled by the Commission’s 2015 strategy document.

The book begins with a detailed examination of the constitutional context within which the Internet is regulated and the various policy documents which have informed this regulation over the years. It then examines key issues in Internet regulation, including electronic commerce, jurisdiction, content regulation, intellectual property, consumer protection, and criminal regulation.

The EU has played a crucial role in Internet regulation in Member States and occupies a unique position of global influence in this fast evolving area of governance. EU Internet Law will be of interest to academics, students and practitioners across the EU and beyond.
