The Geo-blocking Regulation – which was finalised earlier this year and will come into effect across the EU on 3 December 2018 – has received further clarification in recent government guidance.

The Regulation prohibits online sales of goods and services that discriminate between customers in different EU states; sellers will no longer be able to restrict customers from being able to view and purchase products on the basis of their nationality or place of residence or establishment.
