In this edition, our TMT teams in the Benelux focus on recent EU case law covering topics such as the restrictions on copyright versus the freedom of expression (European Court of Human Rights), data protection guidance for apps on smart devices, live streaming of television broadcasts as a communication to the public and hyperlinking.

 

We have also examined recent Belgian developments including the Belgian Privacy’s Commission recommendations on direct and viral marketing and on data breaches, and the implementation of the second E-money directive in Belgium.

Our Dutch colleagues zoom in on the joint Dutch-Canadian investigation into WhatsApp, the Dutch Data Protection Authority’s guidelines on the security of data processing, and the processing of personal data when hyperlinking to a webpage that contains personal data.

Our team in Luxembourg covers the new Luxembourg bill on e-archiving, and the new CSSF circular on central administration, internal governance, risk management and outsourcing guidelines.
