European Court of Justice: States are only allowed to regulate online services in their own country

Based. This should finally stop countries like Germany also trying to force their own youth protection laws on random porn sites, asking for age verification and stuff. They always claimed that they are legally allowed to regulate every website on the planet, because there is no border online.

Since the UK left the EU, rulings in the ECJ are not binding.
(The European Court of Human Rights is a different matter; the UK remains a party to that court, although it is not obliged to follow its instructions).
