The Sharing Economy and the Law: Food for European LawyersMaastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law (2016)
In 2011, Time Magazine qualified the sharing economy as one of the ten ideas that will change the world. It would entail moving from an ‘ownership society’ to a society in which people share and collaborate. Over the last five years, this development has enjoyed a real boom. This brief contribution, written as an editorial, discusses how this development is relevant for the law, and in particular goes into the European Commission's Communication on a ‘European agenda for the collaborative economy’ (2016).
