Project Overview

Over the past two years the Law Commission has been examining various aspects of the law affected by electronic commerce. Our work seeks to ascertain whether any changes to the law are needed to fit the electronic environment in which much business is now carried out. Report 50 : Electronic commerce : part one : a guide for the legal and business community was published in 1998. In this report we make recommendations for enactment of a basic legal framework in New Zealand which will remove core problems arising from the use of electronically generated information and identify further issues on which submissions are sought.
