Adjudicative jurisdiction, cont.
Directive on injunctions for protection of consumers´ interest.
- Problem: Legal vacuum.
- Judgements, injunctions re advertising and marketing = Public Law = not enforced by foreign courts
- Substantial law - protects only the interest of its own residents
- Solution: Right for ”Qualified organization” to bring actions in the Country of Origin. Extension of adjudicative jurisdiction.
- No solution for choice of law!
