CIF Legal Update Issue 6 2017

Every month I bring you my slant on the latest Legislation, Case Law and Consultations. In this edition, these are:

  • The Gig Economy – Innovation but at what cost?
  • Portability of online content
  • German parliament approves powers to be able to fine social media firms
  • IPO publishes guidance on the Intellectual Property (Unjustified Threats) Act 2017
  • Google fined record breaking €2.42 billion euros by European Commission for competition breaches
  • Ofcom Review of Security Guidance
  • Ofcom mobile airwaves regulations proposal

Please see my monthly book recommendation – The Old Patagonian Express by Paul Theroux. A theme of summer reads; hence a travel book. First published in 1979, this book remains every bit as much a pleasure to read and makes for perfect escapism as Theroux describes the harsh climates and unique cultures encountered along the way.

Or for a more contemporary travel read, might I suggest Alastair Sawday’s latest publication – Travelling Light: Journeys Among Special People and Places.
