Volume 16 Issue 4 of Leading Internet Case Law

The year's fourth edition of Leading Internet Case Law - our bi-monthly publication dedicated to providing expert commentary on the most significant court rulings impacting e-commerce - features a wide-range of internet-related case law from across the globe and a range of legal topics, including advertising, liability, copyright, and competition. 

In July, the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit delivered what was hailed by privacy advocates as a victory in the Microsoft email server case, as it found in Microsoft's favour. Yet what is perhaps more interesting about the verdict is what it means for the future of US legislation such as the Stored Communications Act, as Aaron Burstein of Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP explains in his article in this issue. 

This edition features two articles that explore how recent EU Member State court decisions are shaping the extent of the 'right to be forgotten' online. The first piece, by Guillaume Couneson and Valerie Heremans of Linklaters LLP, looks at the Le Soir case in Belgium, which established that an online 'right to be forgotten' exists under Belgian law. The second, by Marco Consonni and Ludovico Anselmi of Orsingher Ortu, discusses the recent Italian Supreme Court decision which has been criticised for setting an 'expiry date' for online news articles.
