Out now: Second Edition of Conflict of Laws and the Internet

Edward Elgar has just published the second edition of Conflict of Laws and the Internet by Pedro De Miguel Asensio.

The blurb reads:

In this thoroughly revised second edition, Pedro De Miguel Asensio presents a practical analysis of jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition and enforcement of judgments in the context of online activities, examining areas where private legal relationships are most affected by the Internet. Addressing the tension between the ubiquity of the Internet and the territorial nature of national legal orders, the author sets out the latest developments across multiple jurisdictions in this dynamic field.


Key Features:

  • Updated coverage of EU Law and recent case law
  • Accessible guidance on how to combat illegal content
  • Scrupulous analysis of complex conflict of laws issues that arise with Internet activities
  • New sections providing extensive explanations of the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act
  • New material on other instruments in the fields of AI, crypto-markets, audiovisual media services, intermediary services, product safety and terrorist content online
  • Overview of key topics including information society services, digital services, data protection, defamation, copyright, trademarks, unfair competition and online contracts 


Conflict of Laws and the Internet continues to be an essential guide for practitioners and policy-makers with applications for IT law experts and companies active in e-commerce. The book’s strong doctrinal base for an area of ever-increasing importance will also be valuable for academics working in the fields of IT law and private international law.
