Discusses the proposals of the draft Directive on contracts for the supply of digital content that extend consumer rights and remedies to supplies of digital content made in exchange for the consumer's data rather than money. Assesses whether the provision of data should be treated as a form of consideration. Considers the business implications of imposing the same consumer protection duties on the suppliers of "free" and paid-for services.
