Description This article analyzes the “mosaic principle” under Art. 7 Para 2 Brussels Ibis Regulation for disputes arising out of non-contractual obligations on the internet, online defamation and online infringements of copyright in particular. The subject of the analysis are decisions of the Court of Justice of the EU, namely Shevill, eDate, Bolagsupplysningen, Pinckney and Hejduk. The aforementioned decisions are critically analyzed in terms of the nature of dissemination of information on the internet and the appropriateness and usefulness of their interpretation in the context of the objectives and principles underlying the Brussels Ibis Regulation.
