Le droit comme outil de développement du commerce électronique

Abstract : E-commerce is considered to be a source of economic growth. If it has developed thanks to the new information and communication technologies, a legal framework is nevertheless needed to promote its growth. Our study will seek, by considering the multiple sources of regulation, mainly European and national, to demonstrate that the latter is oriented along two main axes: ensuring, on the one hand, the freedom of electronic commerce, and, on the other, confidence in this new mode of commerce. We shall establish that the freedom of its exercise cannot be absolute, and that this is indissociable from the interest of the consumer. As soon as a legal framework is absent or inappropriate, the freedom of e-commerce is weakened. Finally, the study will focus on the rules that create the confidence of the participants in e-commerce: their joint confidence in electronic transactions secured within a legal framework; their singular trust, regarding their respective interests, whether it concerns the protection of the intangible assets of the company, or the consent of e-consumers, during their act of purchase as well as in the processing of their personal data.
