Hope you are having an excellent new year! I was very excited to be alerted
by Carlton Samuels on proposed reforms by the European Commission. Thank
you Fatima for the subsequent links sent.
The preliminary public surveys, fact sheets are quite interesting. . This
is interesting in lights of the recent reported items about Twitter and
changing Google Policies.
I also find it interesting that options are not given to consumers etc
especially where you have players over the net who have "significant market
power". For example, for a gmail user with the policy revisions, there is
no such thing as consultation, it's merely arbitrary revision and with no
options not to accept the revisions etc. Whether this is acceptable or not
is another discussion for another time.
I find that these proposed reforms like all reforms help shape the
evolution of the Internet as we know it. I think competition law will also
evolve into looking into regulating competition on the internet. What is
"significant market power" over the internet, should it be treated within
defined national boundaries or would it need an International Commission
established by a Treaty to have the jurisdiction to look into these.
At least in Europe, there is a regional intergovernmental initiative to
harmonise the effect of laws through the proposed reforms where consumers
interests will no doubt be protected where players on the net who have
generally "unchecked" power will be exposed to consistent legal approaches
accross multiple jurisdictions.
Have a great day everyone.
