In this analysis, she looks in particular at the compatibility of the Commission’s proposals with international and EU law, more specifically the E-Commerce Directive and the Charter of Fundamental Rights. With sound and solid arguments, Dr Lucas-Schloetter provides answers, rebutting criticism and making a clear case for why this proposal is compatible with both EU and International law.
