Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Upon request by the JURI Committee, this paper evaluates the European
Commission proposal of 9 December 2015 harmonizing certain civil law
contractual rules for Online Shopping. The directive's approach concerning
conformity, lack of conformity and remedies is analized. It also examines the
question if the proposal is fit to tackle the overall objectives of the digital single
market strategy, that of reducing obstacles for cross-border trade.
