Electronic Funds Transfer:  4. Electronic Funds Transfer Developing an online payment system involves complex issues of security, liability & taxation. At a minimum, banking laws must enable payment via credit/debit-card. Many EU directives deal with this They are good models for legislators. 5. Dispute Resolution:  5. Dispute Resolution Disagreements between buyers & sellers are inevitable. Where small amounts of money are involved, going to court is not practical. To build consumer confidence, encourage cheap & fast “alternative dispute resolution” processes – in addition to the courts. ADR processes need not be government-managed NGOs & businesses can set them up & run them. 5. Dispute Resolution:  5. Dispute Resolution “Report of the Conference on Building Trust in the Online Environment: Business to Consumer Dispute Resolution,” Joint Conference of the OECD, HCOPIL & ICC (11-12 December 2000), Document # DSTI/ICCP/REG/CP (2001). 6. ISP Liability:  6. ISP Liability ISPs should not be held liable if it is only a “transparent relay” for improper commercial information created by others. Also not liable under US or EU law for information that is automatically & temporarily “cached” to speed up local access. ISP has no general duty to monitor or investigate the legality of material which he only transmits for others. 7. Domain names:  7. Domain names Not essential that e-commerce law deal with domain name registration. But it can become an e-commerce issue... If cost of company name registration is too high, or rules limiting how many names can be registered is too restrictive.
