"An Approach to implementing Website Notices" (Public, December 2002)
[thumb] This is a description of one particular approach to providing a comprehensive set of legal notices for a deployed website. This approach involves using a definitive primary notice covering the entire website, and a number of secondary notices associated, or embedded, with specific materials in the website. Each secondary notice describes, augments and refers back to the primary notice. The logistics of the approach are described, along with annotations of the notices used on a deployed website. While the author has some legal training, this work is offered on an "as is" basis, for which you use at your own risk. The work is a synthesis of (a) analysis of a large number of website notices, (b) literature on website legal issues, (c) author.s professional training in intellectual property law, and (d) author.s background in technology and operation of deployed website.

"An overview of EC Regulation 1/2003 as the new implementing regulation for the rules on competition laid down in Articles 81 and 82 of the EC Treaty" (IPRI, March 2003)
[thumb] This paper provides an overview of the introduction of Regulation 1/2003, which replaces Regulation 17/62 as the primary instrument for the implementation of Treaty Articles 81 and 82 in respect of agreements, decisions and concerted practices. This new regulation is one outcome of the EU competition modernisation programme. The objectives of this paper are to: (a) review Regulation 17/62 as the existing primary instrument for the implementation of the rules of competition; (b) summarise DG COMP competition .modernisation. process that resulted in the development of Regulation 1/2003; (c) describe Regulation 1/2003 by detailed analysis with reference to changes from Regulation 17/62; and (d) examine the commentary on, and the prospective impact of, Regulation 1/2003, with primary reference to the UK. This paper represents the state of play as of March 2003, soon after adoption of the new regulation in December 2002, but before it has application in May 2004. As a result, the relevance of the material in this paper may change as the regulation begins to affect competition practices and enters use.
