May's edition of Digital Business Lawyer

Welcome to May's edition of Digital Business Lawyer - formerly E-Commerce Law & Policy - the monthly publication covering key legal/regulatory developments across online IP, distance selling, social media, online advertising, e-privacy and more.

Much has been said about the future of UK-EU relations in the wake of Brexit, and the potential impact on the UK's digital sector. Yet there has been less discussion about the implications of the UK's future trade deals with countries beyond the EU. For example, the UK seems keen to proceed with a free trade deal with the US. In May's issue, Rob Bratby, Partner at Arnold Porter Kaye & Scholer, takes a look at what could be in a potential UK-US free trade deal specifically with the US, and what this would mean for the UK's digital industries. 

Elsewhere in this issue, Becket Mcgrath, Partner at Cooley (UK) LLP, analyses the CMA's ongoing investigation into digital comparison tools. In doing so he takes a look at the CMA's interim update paper on the issue and the possible competition issues that could arise from digital comparison tools.
