The lecture will capture the conflicts of law created by the internet and, most recently the adoption of cloud computing. The internet has enabled unhindered data flows across borders and cloud computing essentially enables the remote processing and storage of vast quantities of data. These technologies fundamentally conflict with laws’ conventional understanding of jurisdiction and the limitation of a state’s power to its territory. The lecture will pinpoint this fundamental conflict with examples from different areas of law: online consumer protection; regulatory conflicts over online gambling; law enforcement’s powers to access foreign data for investigating (cyber-) crime and the regulation of on demand internet videos (porn and hate) and indicate some solutions to these conflicts of law.
