A nice thing about the week before the holidays is that usually a lot of packages arrive. The one I just opened contained a new book on 'Digital Consumers and the Law', resulting from a joint project of the Amsterdam Institute for Information Law (IViR) and the Centre for the Study of European Contract Law (CSECL).
The book deals with the following topics:
Chapter 1 Digital Content Markets for Consumers: Characteristics, Challenges, and Legal Context.
Chapter 2 Classifying Digital Content: Good, Service or Else?.
Chapter 3 Somewhere between ‘B’ and ‘C’: The Legal Status of the ‘Prosumer’ in European Consumer Laws.
Chapter 4 Pre-contractual Information Requirements for Digital Content.
Chapter 5 Conformity and Non-conformity of Digital Content.
Chapter 6 Educating the Regulator: A More Mature Approach Towards the Underage Consumer.
Chapter 7 Fundamental Rights and Digital Content Contracts.
Chapter 8 Money Does Not Grow on Trees, It Grows on People: Towards a Model of Privacy as Virtue.
Chapter 9 Conclusions.
