After 9/11 the United States of America as well as other countries discovered the collection and evaluation of flight passenger data, so called passenger name records (PNR), as a new tool to track terrorists and other criminals. The use of the PNR was meant to help to identify potential terrorists before they reach American territory. Despite being criticized for fundamental rights violations, the EU is on the threshold of imitating the American PNR system. This contribution analyses the current state of play of the proposed EU PNR system by taking into account its scope and its compliance with basic European data protection rules. [less ▲]

and structures of administrative law applicable within various, specific areas of European Union policies. Its intention is to allow insight into the administrative implementation of Union policies in parallel with one another, reviewing and reflecting on both the differences and commonalities of approach in the varied policy sectors. The administrative differences between sectors may, in fact, lie simply in the policy-specific search for answers to problems already solved in another context, be the consequence of pure ‘path dependency’, or reflect a carefully designed approach which takes into account existing general legal principles, but does so in applying them to a discrete policy field. The starting assumption of this work was that some elements of Union administrative law are applicable cross-sectorally, but much is particular to individual policy settings. In fact, only relatively little existing EU law of a cross-sectoral kind can serve as an ― even nascent ― body of coherent, general Union administrative law. Most of the law applicable to the practical implementation of EU policy and its legal embodiment ― broadly, the administrative law of the Union ― has arisen in policy-specific settings. Perhaps the most widely applicable basis of administrative structure, organisation, procedure, information management, and supervision is the Comitology Regulation 182/2011, applied to administrative rule-making by the Commission for implementing acts under Article 291 TFEU. However, even a regulation such as this, and its actual application, covers only a small part of overall administrative activity. Comparable examples of relatively widely applicable administrative-legislation relate to access to information, data protection, and financial management, and certain others as well. Even taking all such instruments and frameworks together, though, can account for only a small proportion of the totality of administrative law measures relating to implementation across the whole gamut of Union policy [less ▲]

Major changes in EU tax law demand an analysis of not just the current state of the field, but also forthcoming EU-level policy initiatives and their likely implications for taxpayers, regulators, and national legislatures alike. This book, the first in-depth commentary and analysis of such developments, offers exactly that. Twenty EU tax and policy experts examine the impact of EU Treaty provisions and recent ECJ case law on EU tax law, and provide well-informed assessments of current and anticipated EU tax policy initiatives and their potential impacts.

New tools for editing of digital images, music and films have opened up new possibilities to enable wider circles of society to engage in ’artistic’ activities of different qualities. User-generated content has produced a plethora of new forms of artistic expression. One type of user- generated content is the mashup. Mashups are compositions that combine existing works (often) protected by copyright and transform them into new original creations. The European legislative framework has not yet reacted to the copyright problems provoked by mashups. Neither under the US fair use doctrine, nor under the strict corset of limitations and exceptions in Art 5 (2)-(3) of the Copyright Directive (2001/29/EC) have mashups found room to develop in a safe legal environment. The contribution analyzes the current European legal framework and identifies its insufficiencies with regard to enabling a legal mashup culture. By comparison with the US fair use approach, in particular the parody defense, a recent CJEU judgment serves as a comparative example. Finally, an attempt is made to suggest solutions for the European legislator, based on the policy proposals of the EU Commission’s “Digital Agenda” and more recent policy documents (e.g. “On Content in the Digital Market”, “Licenses for Europe”). In this context, a distinction is made between non- commercial mashup artists and the emerging commercial mashup scene [less ▲]

New tools for editing of digital images, music and films have opened up new possibilities to enable wider circles of society to engage in ’artistic’ activities of different qualities. User generated content (UGC), a term that already transmits a notion of amateur artists, has produced a plethora of new forms of artistic expression. One type of UGC are mashups, which are compositions that combine existing works (often) protected by copyright, and transform them into new original creations. The European legislative framework has not yet reacted to the copyright problems provoked by mashups. Whereas the flexible US fair use doctrine has accommodated mashups rather easily, the strict corset of limitations and exceptions in Art 5 (2)-(3) of the InfoSoc Directive does not leave any, or only very lit-­‐ tle, room for this innovative and widely popular form of artistic expression for commercial or non-­commercial purposes. The paper analyzes the current Euro pean legal framework and identifies its insufficiencies with regard to enabling a legal mashup culture. By comparison with the US approach, an attempt is made to suggest solutions for the European legislator, based on the policy proposals of the EU Commission’s “Digital Agenda” and more recent policy documents (e.g. “On Content in the Digital Market”, “Licenses for Europe”). In this context a distinction is made between noncommercial mashup artists and the emerging commercial mashup scene. [less ▲]

This chapter attempts to cover a range of interrelated questions that are all inextricably linked to the EU-US relationship in direct tax matters. Its main theme is the potential influence of legal and political developments within the EU on this external relationship. Shining a critical light on the legality of some of the recent changes made to EU legislation and enforcement in the context of the global fight against BEPS, it argues that the US government's newly assumed active role with respect to EU tax policy may inadvertently strengthen tendencies to bring direct tax matters more comprehensively into the range of power of the Commission – including at the international level – as it creates an interest on the US side to negotiate directly with the 'rela decision makers' rather than intermediaries without sovereign power over the entirety of the issues. It concludes, however, that in the current state of integration of direct taxation within the EU, such a bilateral relationship and the conclusion of an EU-US DTA is not yet legally possible. This would likely change, however, if the EU were to adopt a comprehensive corporate taxation regime along the lines of the Commission's CCTB proposal. At the same time, the Commission can no longer be kept entirely on the sidelines in Member States' DTC negotiations. [less ▲]

The historical evolution of the EU-US unemployment rate gap is often explained in the literature in terms of asymmetric changes in labour market institutions. Population aging is another potential source of asymmetry. Asymmetric population aging may generate international capital flows and have a substantial impact on relative unemployment rates. In this paper, we examine whether the combination of institutions, aging and capital flows explains the rise in the gap between 1960 and 2010. To this end, we set up a two-region overlapping generation model with search unemployment in which we introduce the historical and projected changes in labour market institutions and demographic evolutions. We show that asymmetric institutional changes alone can reproduce a large part of the historical rise in the unemployment gap. However, this result does not hold anymore once we add asymmetric aging in closed economies. We are nevertheless able to restore and even improve the initial result when we allow for international capital mobility. [less ▲]
