International Tort Litigation in the Internet and Artificial Intelligence era: an EU approach
The emergence and consolidation of the 3rd and the 4th Industrial Revolutions have amounted to several complex legal risks. From a Private International Law perspective, those challenges often and directly affect the question of determining international jurisdiction in situations where the case enjoys an international character, due to the connection of the elements of the case to different national legal systems. In this respect, besides the well-known situations related to cross-border defamation and international infringement of Intellectual Property Rights through the internet, the recent developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence force to pay close attention to cases of Products Liability or accidents caused by autonomous vehicles related to the increasing use of algorithms. As a global phenomenon, the legal management of the litigation connected to tortious events which take place on the Internet has also drawn a global attention by institutions, scholars and practitioners. This lecture aims to offer an EU perspective on the problems which arise from cross-border litigation in relation to the above-mentioned cases. More specifically, it will analyze and criticize both the currently diverse Regulations which apply in those situations, as well as the unequal approach followed by the ECJ, and the consequences derived from them.

All members and friends of our Faculty community are very welcome to attend!
