This course examines how and to what extent law (and other sources of regulation) controls the mechanisms which facilitate electronic commerce. The course considers the regulation of electronic commerce from the point of view of a relatively broad range of legal topic areas, from concepts of private international law in the assumption of jurisdiction over online transactions, to the regulatory and contractual framework for electronic commerce, to issues such as domain name regulation, online consumer protection, payment systems, e-security and cybercrime.
