La saga des arrêts de la Cour de justice sur le domaine d’applicabilité dans l’espace de la directive 86/653/CEE relative à la coordination des droits des États membres concernant les agents commerciaux indépendants se poursuit. Un récent arrêt Agro Foreign Trade (CJUE, 16 fév. 2017, aff. C-07/15) est l’occasion d’y revenir avec ce double prisme : le droit européen est confronté à des situations complexes et le droit international privé (DIP) est ici son cas d’école.

The saga of the judgments of the Court of Justice on the field of spatial applicability of Directive 86/653 / EEC of 18 December 1986 on the coordination of the laws of the Member States relating to independent commercial agents continues. The recent judgment Agro Foreign Trade (CJEU, 16 Feb. 2017, Case C-07/15) is an opportunity to reiterate this dual prism: European law is confronted with complex situations and private international law (PIL) is here his case study.

Law and the datasphere: an emerging legal realm 

We need new laws to regulate the world’s newest frontier: the datasphere

In coll. with S. Grumbach

20 October 2016

The rise of information technologies – smartphones, sensors spread across public and private spaces, data analytics, real time systems – has led to the production of considerable amounts of data on human activity and the world around us. Data gave rise to a new space, the “datasphere”, a sort of image of the physical world, with traces of activities – including our position at any given moment, our exchanges, the temperature of our homes, financial movements, trading of goods or road traffic. All of this poses a new challenge to the law, which has to define its own relationship with this modern sphere…
