Hadar Leon T. Hadar, a former bureau chief for the Jerusalem Post, is an adjunct scholar of the Cato Institute. Executive Summary Now that the Cold War is becoming a memory, America's foreign policy establishment has begun searching for new enemies. George Will even suggested that the 1,000-year battle between Christendom and Islam might be breaking out once more when he asked, "Could it be that 20 years from now we will be saying, not that they're at the gates of Vienna again, but that, in fact, the birth of Mohammed is at least as important as the birth of Christ, that Islamic vitality could be one of the big stories of the next generations?" © 1992 The Cato InstitutePlease send comments to webmaster

CSI Knowledge: How Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Works (Infographic) : Discovery Channel You know how it goes: Right before Horatio Caine puts on his sunglasses and throws off a corny one-liner as the The Who screams, the forensics team is looking at a blood splatter on the wall and determining that it was a gunshot wound from close range by a six-foot tall, left handed shooter who wore sandals and had a limp.

Comments on the VKI v Amazon judgment Lorna Woods, Professor of Internet Law, University of Essex The recent CJEU judgment in VKI v Amazon concerns jurisdiction both in the context of conflict of laws (applicable consumer laws) and the Data Protection Directive. Essentially, the Court of Justice had to decide which Member State’s data protection law should apply where goods are sold across national borders but within the EU. In this, it forms part of a stream of case law (both decided and pending), dealing with the powers of states (and their institutions) to protect those within their boundaries notwithstanding the digital internal market. Facts The case concerned Amazon, a well-known large company engaged in on-line selling. Questions Referred Judgment The ECJ dealt with the questions on Rome I and II together. Article 4(3) of the Rome II Regulation states that the law of another country applies if it is clear that the tort is manifestly more closely connected with it. Comment Photo credit:

Doctoraatsverdediging Vrijwel elke organisatie ter wereld verzamelt persoonsgegevens. Dagelijks worden er enorme hoeveelheden persoonsggevens bijgehouden met het oog op het leveren van diensten, personeelsbeheer, marketing, fraudedetectie, etc. De Europese wetgeving voorziet een aantal voorwaarden en verplichtingen om ervoor te zorgen dat de persoonlijke levenssfeer van het individu beschermd blijft wanneer zijn of haar persoonsgegevens worden verwerkt. De wetgeving maakt daarbij een onderscheid naargelang de hoedanigheid van de partij die bij de verwerking van persoonsgegevens betrokken is. Het belangrijkste onderscheid is het onderscheid tussen de “verantwoordelijke voor de verwerking” en de “verwerker”. Samen vormen deze begrippen de verdeelsleutel waarmee verantwoordelijkheid en aansprakelijkheid wordt toegewezen. Practically every organisation in the world collects personal data.
