A lot will change this year. So much, in fact, that in the first two issues of Interface 2022 we’re looking ahead to the major legal shifts in 2022 and their implications. Some of these affect the economy as a whole, both at the German and European level. Others focus on specific sectors of the economy, but quite a few also have a direct impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, whether as citizens, consumers or, more specifically, as young people. The five articles in this issue provide an initial overview and orientation, briefly and to the point. Enjoy reading! In the February issue, we examine compliance issues, explore the legal basis of software updates, discuss the consequences of the ePrivacy Regulation, and provide an update on the Digital Single Market.
