He explains underlying principles from a conceptual and a comparative point of view with a focus on transactional issues, using case studies from a variety of jurisdictions to demonstrate the significance of particular aspects in the context of multi-jurisdictional legal practice. Among much else, topics include the following: international lawyering and cultural diversity; lex mercatoria; conflict of laws; letters of intent, position papers, heads of agreement, confidentiality and exclusivity agreements; structure and contents of international contracts; e-contracts and smart contracts; protection of intellectual property rights and technology transfer; trade, countertrade and trade financing; insurance; agency and distributorship; greenfield investments and M&As; competition law and merger control; employment law; corporate governance and corporate social responsibility; international taxation; and dispute settlement and cross-border enforcement of awards.

It also expands many parts and adds sections in relation to new themes that have gained importance since the publication of the first edition. In particular, it addresses legal issues arising out of the digitalization of the global economy with a special focus on choice-of-law questions, smart contracts, e-bills of lading and online dispute settlement.

In comparing the legislative frameworks of e-commerce in the EU, US, China and International Organisations, the book sets out solutions to modernise and harmonise laws at the national, regional and international levels in response to current technological developments. It specifically provides information on the key legal challenges caused by the increasing popularity of service-oriented computing and cloud computing as well as the growing number of cross-border transactions and its relation to data privacy protection, Internet jurisdiction, choice of law and online dispute resolution. It considers how greater legal certainty can be achieved in cloud computing service contracts and other agreements resulted in service-oriented computing. The second edition of Law of Electronic Commercial Transactions is a clear and up to date account of a fast-moving area of study. It will be of great value to legislators, politicians, practitioners, scholars, businesses, individuals, postgraduate and undergraduate students.
