Introducing Digital Business Lawyer - formerly E-Commerce Law & Policy

We are delighted to introduce to you our rebranded publication Digital Business Lawyer. The rebranding and redesign of the publication retains the cutting edge content while revitalising the look and feel of the publication, in order to more closely align it with the vital content inside.

October's issue features an article on the regulatory approaches been taken in the UK and US in response to the rise in social media influencers being paid to promote brands and the disclosure requirements necessary to ensure that consumers are not being misled. Jo Farmer and Rebecca Pennington of Lewis Silkin LLP provide comparative analysis of the actions by UK and US regulators in this evolving space.

Another highlight of October's issue is the in-depth article on the European Commission proposed copyright Directive, which in its current form would directly impact content sharing platforms. Dr Torsten Kraul of Noerr LLP provides detailed commentary on the provisions proposed and the likely response from the different stakeholders.
