The Electronic CISG

7th MAA Schlechtriem CISG Conference

Edited by: Ingeborg Schwenzer, Lisa Spagnolo

This publication contains the papers as presented at the 7th MAA Schlechtriem CISG Conference. In this book, the authors engage with the interface between the rise of electronic communications and the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The contributors consider the opportunities, challenges, and problems in adapting the CISG to deal with issues arising from the information age. In revisiting the CISG in light of technological advances that have changed the world since it was drafted, this book collects chapters dealing with the intersection between the CISG, the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Commerce (MLEC), and the United Nations Convention on the Use of Electronic Communications in International Contracts 2005 (e-CC). A detailed comparison of their respective provisions is provided along with insight into the policies behind their development, including critical commentary and recommendations. In addition, this book covers the inclusion of electronic standard terms pursuant to the CISG, the CISG's effect on the domestic law of electronic transactions in the Middle East, how communications by social media may become binding representations under the CISG, and whether it is time to update the CISG Advisory Council Opinion No.1. This volume will be a valuable addition to the collections of academics and practitioners advising on or interested in international commercial transactions.
