English term or phrase:multi-local torts
Bonjour à tous !
Je m'interroge sur l'adjectif "multi local", parfaitement compréhensible, mais qui ne semble pas très répandu en droit international privé : est-ce que quelqu'un a déjà rencontré ce terme et connaît sa traduction "officielle" ?
The application of the lex loci delicti rule does not exactly yield uniform results. The reason is that Member States attach different values to the place of the wrong when cause (act) and effect (damage) are spread over more than one territory (*multi-local torts*). In the media and communication industries, such multi-local acts are commonplace. This is true in traditional broadcasting and the (international) print press, but even more so – almost by default – in the provision of information services over the Internet.
