Abstract

In contemplation of the 20th anniversary of the use of the Internet for e-commerce, this paper reflects on successes and failures in addressing some contract formation and enforceability issues arising in web transactions. It focuses on the Australian response to four basic questions: the enforceability of web transactions, the time and place of cuntract formation, the incomporation of contractual terms, and the jurisdictional problem. To encourage audience input, a scorecard will be available to willing attendees to note the level of response in their own jurisdiction. The aimof th epaper is to identify areas where more work may be needed to address the needs of e-commerce.
