Thanks to the Management Board of Polish Association of European Law we present you the opinion of Advocate General Maciej Szpunar on the case C-12/15 Universal Music International Holding BV v Michael Tétreault Schilling, Irwin Schwartz, Josef Brožow.
The case concerns the interpretation of regulation no. 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. The main issue is whether a financial harm of purely economical character suffered in one Member State in a result of unlawful action undertaken in another Member State may contitute a sole basis for determination of jurisdiction, on the basis of Art. 5 Section 3 of mentioned regulation.
