  • Undertakings caught in the crossfire: US sanctions on Iran vs. the EU
           Blocking Regulation and possible compensation as State aid
    • Abstract: This articles sets out the regimes applicable in the United States and the European Union in relation to trade with Iran, as a result of the USA’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the EU’s response. These regimes create conflicting obligations on non-US undertakings. On this basis, it is possible to envisage that EU Member States would adopt measures to compensate undertakings for damages suffered as a result of continuing to trade with Iran. This article analyses whether this would fall foul of EU State aid rules and provides guidance regarding the design of any such schemes to prevent their prohibition thereunder.

  • Enhanced cooperation in property matters in the EU and non-participating
           Member States
    • Abstract: This article briefly presents the attitude towards same sex-marriages and registered partnerships of legislators in those EU Member States which have decided not to participate in the adoption of EU regulations concerning property matters for spouses and registered partners. It also provides an overview of these regulations in order to indicate which provisions have triggered such decisions. Finally, it points out some examples of clashes resulting from the different systems being applied in participating Member States and non-participating Member States.

  • European Union copyright law and the Charter of Fundamental
           Rights—Advocate General Szpunar’s Opinions in (C-469/17) Funke Medien
           , (C-476/17) Pelham GmbH and (C-516/17) Spiegel Online
    • Abstract: Increasingly, national courts have begun to consider the impact of the Charter of Fundamental Rights on EU copyright law. In (C-469/17) Funke Medien, (C-476/17) Pelham GmbH and (C-516/17) Spiegel Online v Volker Beck, the German Federal Supreme Court has referred a series of important questions about the relationship between the Charter, copyright law and national constitutional norms. This article explores the Opinions of Advocate General Szpunar in those cases and considers some of the broader potential consequences of the approach that he advocates.

  • Virtual and cryptocurrencies—regulatory and anti-money laundering
           approaches in the European Union and in Switzerland
    • Abstract: Cryptocurrencies and virtual currencies gained prominence in 2017 and 2018. The European Union has closely observed developments but has not been proactive in regulating this new phenomenon. In the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive, a definition of virtual currencies was introduced to EU law for the first time. Reports published by the European Securities and Markets Authority and by the European Banking Authority, both in 2019, provide further clarification on the approach being taken at EU level. Switzerland has been at the forefront of crypto developments. The Swiss approach to regulating the crypto world is different from the approach taken e.g., in Malta and Liechtenstein and may serve as an additional inspiration for EU regulators.

The article includes some practical examples of such declarations, agreements and last wills and also a practical recommendation for when such documents are being created.

  • The Renckhoff case: 6 degrees of separation from the lawful user
    • Abstract: The “Renckhoff” judgment follows a prolific series of decisions, mainly on the right to communication to the public. However, it also provides us with new insights on six different levels: the concept of originality, the analysis of economic rights, the concept of a ‘new public’, the limits to the CJEU’s hyperlinking case law, the prototype of the “diligent copyright holder” and the scope of application of the teaching exception. Even if the decision itself is not favorable for copyright users, its reasoning contributes to the development of a new approach to lawful use in European Copyright law.

  • The long ‘journey’ of banks from Basel I to Basel IV: has the banking
           system become more sound and resilient than it used to be'
    • Abstract: The amount of capital that banks have to hold has been raised over time due to the adoption of the increasingly demanding standards issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. Accordingly, in December 2017, the so-called Basel IV standards have been published with the final aim of further increasing the capital of banking institutions. Despite the criticisms, capital requirements are an effective tool to enhance the soundness of banks and in turn to help maintain financial stability. Nevertheless, the need still arises to make the legal framework increasingly less ‘one-size-fits-all-driven’, more conscious of the subjective differences among market participants and thereby more efficient.

  • FinTech on the Dark Web: the rise of cryptos
    • Abstract: Financial technology (FinTech) based trading activities operate above and underground. Due to their nature, FinTech products can be used within the dedicated regulatory framework or into the deep layers of the Internet. This feature of FinTech alone could potentially undermine the existing financial services regulation (FSR), the aim of which is to ensure financial stability through investor protection measures and measures protecting the integrity of the financial market. To this end, much of the illegal activities on the Dark Web have an interconnected and cross-sectorial impact on the FSR’s aims—for example, the on-going problem with stealing of personal data has implications on investor protection, often via market manipulation channels. Such considerations make it relevant to analyse the ways FinTech used on the Dark Web could affect traditional and FinTech activities in the financial sector. How strong this impact could be would probably depend on how ubiquitous FinTech innovations are on the Deep or Dark Web. This article will argue that by definition their market presence is not only across the entire Internet, but also very high in volume. This is all the more the case because FinTechs brainchild, the cryptos, have become the go to currency for many activities outside the law.

  • Enforcement of EU agri-food law
    • Abstract: A new Official Controls Regulation comes into force in the agri-food sector of the EU. This article analyses the Regulation from the perspective of the various stakeholders. It appears that the Regulation is mainly instrumental in nature. It provides a toolbox to competent authorities in the Member States. Instruments are provided for inspection and to rectify non-compliances. It is weaker in providing checks and balances to food businesses. It does protect whistle-blowers. Empowerment of victims and consumers is totally absent.

  • Data retention: the life, death and afterlife of a directive
    • Abstract: In its landmark judgment in Digital Rights Ireland, the Court of Justice of the European Union struck down the Data Retention Directive on the basis that it violated the fundamental rights to privacy and data retention. While the judgment has rightly been praised for its robust protection of fundamental rights, it also leaves important questions unresolved and raises deeper issues about the proper division of competence between the EU and its Member States and the respective roles of the courts and the political organs within the EU’s constitutional structure.

  • Behavioural infringements due to the human factor: how is the EU
           reacting'
    • Abstract: This article analyses the existing food safety law system. It also focuses on the horsemeat scandal and on the weaknesses of the system for dealing with food fraud. A description is provided of the new tools that have been proposed in order to deal with food fraud as well as of the new rules aimed at ensuring verification of compliance with the rules in order to prevent and/or to manage cases of food fraud. The article then concentrates on the Fipronil case: on the tools used in order to communicate and deal with the case and on the actions taken following it. The status quo and possible improvements of food law Enforcement will be discussed.

  • EU Environmental Impact Assessment: frequently asked questions by domestic
           legal practitioners
    • Abstract: Compliance with the requirements of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and/or Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is a key feature when claimants challenge big projects like power plants or wind farms. The article answers some typical questions that may arise among domestic legal practitioners. The background and the historical development of EIA/SEA is summarised. The importance of the Aarhus Convention is highlighted. A brief information on the EIA procedure, the invocability of EIA requirements and the role of an actio popularis is provided. It is shown how some Member States have to adjust their concept of subjective right or sufficient interest in order to allow NGO standing. Direct access to justice against plans and programmes may still be a problem in some Member States. However, a consistent interpretation in the light of the Aarhus Convention and/or a contextual reading and interpretation of the relevant EU law may prevent a denial of justice in the field.

  • End-of-life decisions. Recent jurisprudence of the European Court of Human
           Rights
    • Abstract: The European Convention on Human Rights as well as the Biomedicine Convention do not give instructions to States on how to regulate end-of-life issues, such as euthanasia and physician assisted dying. The right to life suggests that States should above all protect human life and take steps in case this entitlement is violated. Over the course of the last years, the European Court of Human Rights has acknowledged that individuals also have a right to personal autonomy. Persons who are mentally competent to make informed decisions can, according to the European Court, decide to refuse treatment and, under certain circumstances, decide to shorten their life, depending on the domestic legal framework. States are left a large margin of appreciation to regulate end-of-life issues. Besides these self-chosen exceptions, doctors may come to the conclusion that further artificial nutrition, hydrating or life sustaining treatment is not justified, provided that such decisions are taken in an utterly careful way and in accordance with domestic legislation.

  • Citizens’ rights in the post Brexit scenario
    • Abstract: This article focuses on the issue of citizens’ rights in the post-Brexit landscape, taking into account the negotiations’ current state of play. At this stage, the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) seem to share a common understanding on citizens’ rights, currently covered by Part Two of the Draft Withdrawal Agreement published in March 2018. Even though progress has been achieved on the provisions regarding citizens’ rights, some concerns remain both on the content of these provisions and on their implementation. Apart from this, the protection of free movement of persons has still to be defined in the framework of the future relationship.

  • State immunity and employment relationships before the European Court of
           Human Rights
    • Abstract: This article considers challenges to state immunity under Article 6 ECHR (the right to a fair trial) in relation to employment disputes. It is argued that the development of the adjudication of these disputes in the ECtHR has been positive for Applicants, with the Court willing to find that state immunity is not a proportionate response in the context of Article 6. However, it is also argued that there are a number of tensions which exist in the adjudication of these disputes, and these tensions are only increasing with the more ‘progressive’ findings of the Court.

  • The right to be heard in European Union civil service law: by whom, when
           and on what' Answers from the recent case law of the General Court
    • Abstract: The entry into force of the Charter of Fundamental Rights has enriched the right to be heard of a new connotation, which is its tight link with the right to good administration. This is an important addition to the already known meaning and relevance of the right to be heard, which was that of being part of the rights of the defence. This new connotation of the right to be heard emerged in a series of cases before the General Court and concerning EU civil service law. In particular, prepared by the case law of the CST, and further fertilised by that of the Court of Justice, the case law of the General Court has granted to the right to be heard the status of an autonomous procedural requirement as regards a vast panoply of administrative procedures, provided for in the EU Staff Regulations and Conditions for the Employment of Other Staff.

  • Environmental law in the United Kingdom post Brexit
    • Abstract: UK environmental law has been heavily influenced by EU membership, and Brexit presents both opportunities and challenges to its long-term development. In the immediate future the substance of much of existing EU environmental law will continue to have legal effect in the UK after Brexit under the Government’s policy of ‘roll-over’. But it has become increasingly clear that other features of the EU environmental architecture will need to be replicated after Brexit—notably the role of general environmental principles, and the European Commission’s supervisory role in ensuring that environmental law is properly applied by government.

  • Are all incapacitated people confined in a hospital, care home or their
           own home deprived of liberty'
    • Abstract: In Stanev, the European Court of Human Rights was able to decide the application without determining whether ‘any placement of a legally incapacitated person in a social care institution constitutes a deprivation of liberty’. Answering this question necessitates distinguishing carefully between loss of autonomy and loss of liberty. Determining the level of restraint in a particular situation involves establishing what the individual can do and wishes to do (‘wills’) but for any interference with their freedom to do it. It is a ‘but-for test’. It is also critical to understand that the presence or absence of objections are relevant to the objective condition, not just the subjective condition.

  • Understanding the legal provisions that allow processing and profiling of
           personal data—an analysis of GDPR provisions and principles
    • Authors: Elena Gil González; Paul de Hert
      Abstract: This contribution looks at the legal grounds for data processing (‘when is one allowed to collect and use data on others'’) according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It then addresses the specific regime for profiling both by solely automated and non-automated means. What is the most suitable lawful basis for this specific, sometimes controversial kind of processing' The vagueness and subjectivity of various relevant GDPR provisions in this matter can undermine legal certainty. Data protection principles such as transparency and overall fairness as enshrined in Article 5 GDPR may in this case serve as a resort to identify appropriate checks and balances. Additional understanding can be found outside data protection legislation—for instance, in competition law.
