Irish law firm Matheson on 29th June published an article explaining the term geo-blocking as meaning the practice of using territorial licensing restrictions in online and offline transactions of physical goods and the provision of electronic services. In practice, it says, geo–blocking stops customers in one country from accessing websites in other countries through the use of factors such as location of IP addresses. EU Regulation 2018/302/EU, the ‘Geo-blocking Regulation’, will apply across the EU from 3rd December. The article examines how the Regulation affects traders in the EU, which it says aims to provide the same opportunities to consumers and businesses transacting across the EU. It also considers the possible effect of Brexit.
