Digital Content Sweep

The European Commission just published the results of a 'sweep investigation' conducted on digital content. This EU-wide screening of websites led the Commission to conclude that about 75% of websites offering digital content (such as music, videos, e-books and games) are not fully complying with European consumer law. In particular, problems are found regarding unfair contract terms, the consumer's right to withdrawal and information on the trader's identity and address.

Please check the press release and Digital Content Sweep website for more information. On the legal framework for digital content contracts for consumers, see also our earlier post 'Reporting on digital content contracts'.
