  • Turning the crossroad for a connected world: reshaping the European
           prospect for the Internet of Things
    • Authors: Ünver M.
      Pages: 93 - 118
      Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) depicts a world of networked smart objects, including cars, home appliances and wearable devices, which all require ‘interoperability’ to be used with seamless communication and data exchange. Interoperability will not be successfully achieved unless IoT users are pre-empted from being locked into specific (eg proprietary) ecosystems. Enabling IoT interoperability requires a comprehensive approach that does not just depend on standardization and intellectual property policies, which often end up being fragmented, diverse and niche solutions. Focusing on the EU toolbox, this study elaborates on the pertinent legal rules, precedents and self-regulatory mechanisms, and ultimately finds that existing measures are far from effective, coherent and forward-looking. Addressing this problem requires a policy making strategy based on a balance struck between IoT standardization and innovation, which suggests finding of the least intrusive and costly tool. Given this fact, enabling IoT (non-personal as well as personal) data be ported across different ecosystems is found to be the ideal solution, with the view to lessen vendor lock-in and keep the pace of innovation. Last but not least, it is concluded that technologically oriented measures as well as overambitious goals should be refrained to avoid ‘type errors’ in this technically complex and multifaceted area, where a holistic perspective is increasingly difficult to adopt.

  • Are online consumers protected from geo-blocking practices within the
           European Union'
    • Authors: Flórez Rojas M.
      Pages: 119 - 141
      Abstract: Geo-blocking as a technological protection measure directly affects e-commerce in the European Union, reinforcing discriminatory practices in the online world. The first attempt to fight discrimination in cross-border trade was Article 20 of the Services Directive, which describes the non-discrimination principle. However, this provision has failed in practice due to its large interpretative uncertainties and lack of enforcement. In this view, discriminatory practices have been a constant in the online market and they have intensified due to the use of new geolocation technologies. This article presents the possibility to use provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) to tackle geo-blocking practices. The article also considers the new proposal on addressing geo-blocking and it gives some insights regarding the problems of applicability and scope that can open the possibility for consumers to use Article 18 TFEU as legal bases for cases related to geo-blocking practices.

  • ISPs’ copyright liability in the EU digital single market strategy
    • Authors: Colangelo G; Maggiolino M.
      Pages: 142 - 159
      Abstract: The European Union Commission is eager to reform the current rules governing Internet Service Providers’ (ISPs) copyright liability. According to the Commission, online services providing access to copyright protected content uploaded by their users without the involvement of right holders have become main sources of access to content online. This affects right holders’ possibilities to determine whether, and under which conditions, their works and other subject matters are used as well as their possibilities to get an appropriate remuneration for them (value gap).In order to close the reported value gap between right holders and online platforms, the Proposal for a Directive on copyright within the digital single market strategy endorses a wider definition of the communication to the public and imposes new control obligations on ISPs.Such a policy choice raises some concerns. First, it is doubtful whether the Proposal is consistent with both the interpretation of the notion of communication to the public provided by the European Court of Justice case law and the safe harbor granted by the e-Commerce Directive. Moreover, the Proposal is not supported by any empirical evidence. The lack of robust statistical evidence of displacement of sales by online copyright infringements undermines the ratio of the intervention, that is, the reported value gap and the consequent need to assure the right holders of an adequate remuneration for the circulation of works on the Internet.

  • Beyond BitCoin—legal impurities and off-chain assets
    • Authors: Reed C; Sathyanarayan U, Ruan S, et al.
      Pages: 160 - 182
      Abstract: Blockchain technology allows the creation of distributed ledgers. These distribute control among the players rather than requiring a centralized database, and so can reduce costs and speed-up transactions. However, when it is used for assets which exist outside the blockchain itself, an unmodified adoption of the technology would bypass legal and regulatory requirements which, for these kinds of assets, cannot be bypassed without fundamental change to the law.Building those requirements into any blockchain-based system introduces features which are not necessary for performing its core functions, and we call these ‘legal impurities’. The most important legal impurities required are those relating to identification of the parties, and introducing the ability of a trusted third party to make modifications to the ledger. Not only does introducing these legal impurities make fundamental changes to the concept behind blockchain, but it is also essential that they are implemented in ways which do not threaten the integrity of the blockchain as evidence.This article has been produced by members of the Microsoft Cloud Computing Research Centre, a collaboration between the Cloud Legal Project, Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University of London and the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge. The authors are grateful to members of the MCCRC team and to attendees at the fourth Annual MCCRC Symposium (Windsor, September 2017) for helpful comments and to Microsoft for the generous financial support that has made this project possible. Responsibility for views expressed, however, remain with the authors.
