Waldburger, M; Macri, A; Stiller, B (2010). Service Provider Market Activities Constituting Jurisdiction for International Service Contracts—A Structuring Approach and Techno-legal Implications.

Abstract

Questions of Internet jurisdiction have attracted research ever since the Internet has become popular. Despite a long track of existing work in the area, a number of key issues remains unanswered to date. In particular, the subject matter of Internet jurisdiction has to be presented from an
integrated international viewpoint. A structured,embracing, and consistent approach in assessing the subject matter needs to be determined. And a focus specific to characteristics of the Internet and electronic business in the Internet as of today needs to be adopted.
Consequently, this paper conducts a comparative Private International Law study considering connecting factors and service provider market activities constituting jurisdiction in major Internet markets (European Union, United States of America, China). Identified connecting factors are related to market activities and assessed by means of a common structuring scheme developed. This is followed by the set of market activities-driven challenges determined. These challenges are identified based on a scenario reflecting a service provider with connection to several markets. An in-depth discussion reveals by which connecting factors — and the respectively reflected market activities — a service provider might avail itself to urisdiction in a market. This is complemented by the respective recommendations developed on how to address techno-legal implications with respect to Internet jurisdiction.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
