Die Auswirkungen der E-Commerce-Regelungen der EU-Richtlinie über Verbraucherrechte auf das BGB

  1. Dr. Kai Purnhagen


This article investigates the effect of the Consumer Rights Directive 2011/83/EU on the German BGB. Special emphasis is placed on e-com- merce-relevant legislation. The article is based on the argument that European law requires the German legislator, when it transposes Directives intended to create rights for individuals into the BGB, to do so inbest conformity with the BGB’s current system. It therefore browses through the BGB’s relevant norms and investigates how such a transposition may be achieved. It will conclude that such a transposition is possible, but that the German legislator should de- vote more time to investigate how such transposi- tion shall be acquired.
