      La distinta calificación de las obligaciones contractuales o extracontractuales por los diferentes ordenamientos jurídicos de los Estados en los que se aplica el Reglamento, nos lleva a considerar las soluciones a un eventual conflicto de calificaciones. La solución más generalizada es acudir a la calificación ex lege fori, pero tratándose de un texto comunitario se impone la necesidad de construir un concepto autónomo que asegure la aplicación uniforme de la norma.
      The distinct qualification of contractual and extracontractual obligations by the different legal systems in which the regulation is applied leads us into considering the solutions for an eventual conflict of qualifications. The most generalized solution is to resort to the qualification from the law of the forum, but dealing with a community text there is a need to construct an autonomous concept which secures the uniform application of the norm.

      […] la autonomía de la voluntad contemplada en el RR II difícilmente sería utilizada en esta materia: el acuerdo a posteriori sobre la ley aplicable es equivalente al acuerdo sobre el fondo, y si hay acuerdo sobre el fondo, ¿para qué acudir a un juez?
