On 9 December 2015, the European Commission submitted a proposal for a directive for contracts for online and other distance sales of goods, and a proposal for a directive on digital content. This paper discusses the scope of the proposals, conformity and remedies, and matters regarding the supply of digital content and the modification or termination of long-term contracts for the supply of digital content. Special attention will be given to the question whether the introduction of an additional scheme for sales contracts is workable for legal practice.
