The Internet has been described as a medium that neither is, nor should, nor could be controlled. And yet, due to internet users’ concerns discouraging them from its further use, legislators have undertaken efforts to regulate certain aspects of the Internet’s use. Since there is no comprehensive framework regulating all Internet transactions, this course tackles only selected issues. These include: fundamental rights protection online (privacy, data protection, freedom of expression); contracts concluded online (digital content, online selling); intellectual property law online (geo-blocking; Digital Rights Management). This module will complement the other available optional modules: Intellectual Property; (European) Consumer Protection.
