There are two kinds of EU laws: regulations and directives. Regulations have direct effect throughout the EU, which helps harmonize the laws of the Single Market. Directives instruct the member states to implement their own laws to some effect, which helps adapt the laws to that member state's circumstances. Reverse engineering is the subject of the EU ...

Probably not. As I understand it, the case is being run in Scotland on the belief that Scottish constitutional law is more likely to allow this claim than English law is.

Under the GDPR, consent is not the only legal basis that allows processing of your personal data. Other legal bases such as legitimate interest exist as well.

Testing the law means running a case under that law and having a court rule on it. In common law jurisdictions, the judiciary does not give opinions on whether a bill proposed or an act passed by the legislature is legal or not - they decide controversies that arise under those acts.

I asked this exact question to my criminal law lecturer. Rape indeed does require penetration of the mouth, anus, or vagina, with a penis. This is indeed a double standard, as this doesn't recognise many forms of female on male sexual assault as rape.

I'm assuming that you are locking him inside the house with a responsible adult, rather than locking him in his room alone for a long period of time. The latter would probably be considered neglect or abuse. There is no hard law on exactly what measures parents may take so any case would have to be considered on its merits. Legally any person under 18 is ...
