Legal Issues in Electronic Commerce is a collection of published materials, including articles, legislations, and cases. Designed to encourage readers to understand and analyze issues that surround e-commerce with an open mind- a necessity for a landless, rapidly changing technological world, the book looks at e-commerce from the perspectives of various disciplines: economics, geography, sociology, psychological, political, and statistical. Offering readers an understanding of the interest and expectations of these disciplines, the book proceeds to introduce important legal issues surrounding e-commerce: regulation, jurisdiction, domain name registrations, government support, contract issues, and consumer issues are thoroughly covered. Carefully selected, materials in this fourth edition offer readers the latest legal developments in e-commerce, an ever-expanding and increasingly critical element to our daily life.
