Abstract

This article discusses the latest cases at the EU Court of Justice involving cross-border electronic contracts and torts. The article concentrates on four cases: one decision, one AG opinion and two references. The cases concern three typical situations and their potential to trigger special jurisdiction in Regulation 44/2001 and are connected by one underlying question: when should European courts take jurisdiction in cases involving non-resident defendant websites? The paper was presented at I UAM Conference on EU law, held on July 14-15 in Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Keywords: jurisdiction, EU, internet law, internet torts, Regulation 44/2001
