Professor Julia Hornle’s inaugural lecture is part of the ‘Meet our Professors: QMUL Inaugural Lecture Series’.
Unclaimed territories in the clouds: Where are the limits to internet jurisdiction?
Professor Julia Hornle, Professor of Internet Law, will be holding her inaugural lecture on Wednesday 24 February 2015 at 6.30pm. The lecture will be followed by a free drink reception. The lecture will be held in Skeel Lecture Theatre, Mile End campus.
Professor Julia Hornle’s lecture will capture 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 and hate) and indicate some solutions to these conflicts of law.
