In this edition, our TMT teams in the Benelux focus on recent EU developments covering topics such as (i) the ECJ’s preliminary ruling that a database rightholder may prohibit dedicated metasearch engines from using its database, and (ii) the ECJ’s clarification of causality requirements and regulation in Brussels.

 

We have also examined recent Belgian developments including (i) an insert in the Code on Economic Law, (ii) the confirmation by the Court of Cassation that ISP’s can be requested to block all domain names, (iii) and the Court of First Instance’s ruling that search engines may benefit from the safe harbours under the e-commerce Directive. 

Our Dutch colleagues zoom in on (i) an interesting judgment on the duty of care of a contractor in light of a license issue, (ii) the General court of the EU’s decision on the obligation to state reasons when rejecting a tender, (iii) the violation of the Dutch Data Protection act when collecting personal data via smart TVs, and (iv) Google’s new privacy conditions.

Our team in Luxembourg covers the creation of the Luxembourg Independent Audiovisual Authority.
