GNI Statement on Domestic Cases Asserting Global Internet Jurisdiction

January 29, 2020|feature, Issues, issues highlight, Jurisdictional Assertions & Limits|

Two recent rulings by the Court of Justice of the European Union — Google vs. CNIL and Glawischnig-Piesczek vs. Facebook — fail to sufficiently consider freedom of expression and privacy risks when EU countries' domestic authorities assert global authority and jurisdiction over online content. Greater efforts at intergovernmental and multistakeholder deliberation are needed to determine the appropriate scope of application for domestic legal orders on global internet companies.
