Accordingly, there is a requirement of effective dispute resolution methods for the disputes that arise out contractual disputes relating to ecommerce. However, since the internet is a borderless entity, the issue of jurisdiction arises. As a result contractual disputes are not easily solved and this leads to a deterrent in using ecommerce as the preferred method of business.
This paper analyses the current framework and precedents that are used to determine jurisdiction in e-contract disputes. The paper also analyses if the principles of private international law can be used to set up a regulatory framework for determining jurisdiction in e-contract disputes
