Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2013 M02 28 - 286 pages

Electronic Commerce and International Private Law examines the maximization of consumer protection via the consumer's jurisdiction and law. It discusses the proposition that a new connecting factor be used to improve the efficiency of juridical protection for consumers who contract with foreign sellers by electronic means and offers recommendations as to how to amend existing jurisdiction and choice of law rules to provide a basis for the consumer to sue in his own jurisdiction and for the law of the consumer's domicile to apply.

The book will be a valuable resource for academics, students and practitioners working in the areas of international private law, electronic commerce law and consumer law.
