What is the impact of electronic commerce on the entire United States legal system? Describe the impact of e-commerce on the global legal environment
That sounds like a major research paper -- or maybe several books.
What have you found from your research? How do you think this homework board can help you?
Actually, it is posed as part of a questioned to be answered within 350 words... interesting no?
From what I can tell, the reasoning lies in the fact that e-commerce hasn't really been shaping legal systems, so much as e-commerce is defined by the legal systems of which they report to.
US law, instead of changing the entire country's methods of contract law, merely enveloped e-commerce with E-sign law. E-sign dictates that electronic contracts will be delt with in the same manner as good-old-fashioned paper documentation.
