In this Inaugural Lecture Professor Julia Hornle discusses the conflict of law created by the internet, and most recently the adoption of cloud computing. The lecture will pinpoint the fundamental conflict of cloud computing with laws’ conventional understanding of jurisdiction and the limitation of a state’s power to its territory, with examples from different areas of law: online consumer protection; regulatory conflicts over online gambling; law enforcement’s powers to access foreign data for investigating (cyber-) crime and the regulation of on demand internet videos (porn & hate) and indicate some solutions to these conflicts of law.
