On 11 January 2009, Regulation (EC) No 864/2007 on the law applicable to non-contractual obligations (Rome II) became applicable in twenty six EU Member States. The Rome II Regulation provides conflict of law rules for tort and delict, unjust enrichment, negotiorum gestio and culpa in contrahendo. In particular, the Rome II Regulation sets out specific rules governing product liability, unfair competition and acts restricting free competition, environmental damage, infringement of intellectual property rights, and industrial action. This book is a comprehensive guide to the Rome II Regulation. It presents the rules designating the applicable law according to Rome II and explores the raisons d'etres behind these rules. The book presents numerous case scenarios and explains what the applicable law should be under the Rome II Regulation. As such it is a comprehensive handbook providing the practitioner with explanations of how the regulation could and should be interpreted and applied.
