The adoption of electronic commercial transactions has facilitated cross-border trade and business, but the complexity of determining the place of business and other connecting factors in cyberspace has challenged existing private international law. This comparison of the rules of internet jurisdiction and choice of law as well as online dispute resolution (ODR) covers both B2B and B2C contracts in the EU, USA and China. It highlights the achievement of the Rome I Regulation in the EU, evaluates the merits of the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreement at the international level and gives an insight into the current developments in CIDIP. The in-depth research allows for solutions to be proposed relating to the problems of the legal uncertainty of internet conflict of law and the validity and enforceability of ODR agreements and decisions.

English summary: This volume deals with the contract law of the European legal systems. What are the essential rules of these systems on the formation and validity of contracts? What rules apply to a party's right to bring a claim for performance, to terminate the contract or to claim damages for breach? While the discussion is based on the national rules, they are taken into account only as local variations on a European theme. To what extent is it therefore possible to speak of a common European law of contract? What contributions do the "Principles of European Contract Law" and the proposal of the "Draft Common Frame of Reference" make? This book is not only aimed at helping to teach young Europeans lawyers, but also strives to assist those engaged in the reform of national contract law or the drafting of uniform European legislation. The first 1996 edition of the volume has now been updated and completed. German description: Unter "Europaischem Vertragsrecht" versteht dieses Buch die Regeln, die den Rechtsordnungen der europaischen Lander gemeinsam sind: Wie kommt ein gultiger Vertrag zustande? Nach welchen Regeln wird beurteilt, ob eine Vertragspartei die Erfullung des Vertrages verlangen, von dem Vertrag Abstand nehmen, ihn widerrufen oder kundigen oder den Kontrahenten auf Schadensersatz in Anspruch nehmen kann? Lassen sich auf dem Gebiet des Vertragsrechts gemeineuropaische Strukturen auffinden? Gibt es allgemein akzeptierte Regeln? Wie sind sie zu formulieren, wenn man die "Prinzipien des Europaischen Vertragsrechts" oder die Vorschlage des "Draft Common Frame of Reference" berucksichtigt? Dabei werden die Losungen der nationalen Rechtsordnungen ausfuhrlich - wenn auch stets nur als nationale Variationen eines europaischen Themas - behandelt. Das Buch kann deshalb bei der rechtsvergleichenden Ausbildung der jungen europaischen Juristen eine Rolle spielen, ferner auch dort, wo e s um die Vorbereitung europaischen Gesetzesrechts oder um die Reform der nationalen Vertragsrechte geht. Das Buch ist in einer ersten unvollstandigen Auflage schon 1996 erschienen. Die Neuauflage bringt den Text auf den neuen Stand und erganzt ihn um die damals noch fehlenden Abschnitte.

Outsourcing has increased and developed immensely in scope, sophistication and ambition over the last twenty years - and continues to evolve. Information technology outsourcing is potentially highly complex and risk-laden, especially for the fast growing areas of business process and transformational outsourcing, and where whole departments or business areas are outsourced. Decisions taken by the customer at the outset have long term ramifications: they need to ensure that the processes are flexible enough to deal with change, maintain necessary levels of security, avoid abandoning management of key resources and prevent costs spiralling out of control. It is essential to have a good contract to meet such challenges. All these issues and others, such as intellectual property arrangements, the complexities of transferring staff, property and other assets, tendering procedures and performance monitoring, must not be ignored and are addressed in the second edition of Rachel Burnett's successful Outsourcing IT. Whether you are a supplier or a customer, it is vital to have a properly negotiated formal contract if you are entering into an outsourcing arrangement. A good contract needs careful planning and this book provides a comprehensive guide to the whole process. Well-planned and well-structured outsourcing arrangements, by well-informed and well-advised customers, are far more likely to work for both customer and supplier alike and Outsourcing IT - The Legal Aspects: Planning, Contracting, Managing and the Law is the perfect place to start.

Der Leser sei gewarnt: das durchtriebene Pflänzchen Addie wird ihm gewiß das Herz stehlen. Aufs Stehlen versteht die Kleine sich nämlich, sie ist ein wahres Naturtalent. Das muß sogar der gewiefte Long Boy anerkennen, der die arme Waise unter seine Fittiche und in seine Gaunerschule nimmt. So lernt Addie schnell, wie man tränenseligen Witwen Prachtbibeln mit Widmung aus dem Jenseits andreht oder wie man eine schrottreife Karre in einen funkelnagelneuen Straßenkreuzer verwandelt, indem man einen hartgesottenen Gebrauchtwarenhändler elegant aufs Kreuz legt. Ihre Begabung läßt sie auch dann nicht im Stich, als es darum geht, Long Boy aus den Netzen einer wasserstoffblonden Schaubudenschönheit zu befreien, um ihn wieder fürs Geschäft flottzumachen. Und so kurven diese beiden schrägen Vögel im kanariengelben Cadillac zwischen Florida und Oklahoma fröhlich von einem Kaff zum anderen, nie um einen pfiffigen Trick verlegen, anderer Leute Geld in die eigene Tasche zu praktizieren. Immer machen die beiden ihren Schnitt, auch wenn einmal ein Geschäft schiefgeht. Eine abenteuerliche Flucht führt mitten hinein ins Dollar-Paradies der Baumwolle, mit der man besonders viel verdienen kann, wenn man sich nicht die überflüssige Mühe macht, sie anzubauen, ehe man sie verkauft. Größere Geschäfte – größere Gefahren: schon nahen im Foyer des Grand-Hotels von Memphis zwei dunkelgekleidete Herren mit den Handschellen, als Major Carter F. Lee alias Colonel Culpepper rettend eingreift. Er ist einer der Großen der Branche; unter seiner kundigen Anleitung macht Long Boy steile Karriere.
