This module studies the cross-border legal and regulatory environment in which e-commerce businesses operate. It focuses on the problems of compliance with that law and regulation, and alternative strategies which e-commerce businesses might adopt when faced with multiple and contradictory claims to legal and regulatory authority. The nature of these claims will be analysed critically, and the module will include discussion of why the authority of some claims is rejected and how lawmakers can improve the quality of their authority claims.
