Jurisdiction and Extraterritoriality in a Connected World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will explore jurisdiction in an increasingly post-Westphalian paradigm. Ideas of territorial jurisdiction are being tested (and brought into question) in an increasingly connected online world.

We will discuss the issue of global content deletion orders based on one country’s national law. These typically arise when courts order intermediaries to delete content posted by a user ­­often based on legal theories that conflict with other countries' free expression laws. With both the French Data Protection Authority and a Canadian court ordering Google to delete search results globally, the issue is very current. What are the right responses in terms of law and policy?
