Abstract

The application of contemporary approaches of jurisdiction
to the online environment has so far been
a rather unhappy saga, marked by controversy and
failures. This is unsurprising given the stark contrast
between the Internet’s relatively borderless nature
and the territorial focus of most jurisdictional rules.
Currently, more attention is given to this topic than
ever before, and this session will consider in particular:

• What is jurisdiction in today’s society?
• What does jurisdiction mean when news spreads
globally at the very moment of posting and companies
are located worldwide?
• Why would states collaborate via mutual legal
assistance if they can get, or try to get, the data
they are looking for not from companies abroad
but from their subsidiaries at home – where the
law enforcement agency is based?
• How should corporations organize themselves
when they are faced with such requests?
