Technology and E-Commerce Law - LAW868

This unit examines the law underlying the use of the internet and electronic commerce. The cross border nature of the internet has opened up global markets for goods and services, meaning that the unique nature of such transactions calls for a framework to promote legal certainty. The unrestricted flow of electronic information through cyberspace has meant that the relevant laws by necessity cannot be limited to national laws only, Instead, the internationalisation of law is essential to deal with this new medium. Topics to be studied include jurisdictional analysis of business transactions, Australian and international approaches, online consumer protection and internet gambling.
