Abstract

Discusses why the EU's reform of its regulatory framework on telecommunications encompassed copyright enforcement for online infringements, and reviews key features of the "internet freedom provision" to be inserted into Directive 2002/21, including whether it extends the competence of the EU beyond that authorised by the EC Treaty. Assesses whether the provision should have been introduced via the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union art.114 or by Directive 2000/31, and considers its compatibility with the Digital Economy Act 2010.
