Product details

The rapid growth of the Internet has transformed the way we buy and sell goods and services. It has also made many long-standing laws and regulations obsolete and given rise to new ones. E-Commerce: Financial Products and Services offers complete practical guidance on how to conduct financial services within this changing legal framework.

You'll find detailed discussion of such topics as: risks in Web marketing and e-commerce; electronic contracts; jurisdiction issues; financial privacy and data protection; the changing approach to software patents; acquiring IT hardware, software and services; Internet-based banking products such as "stored value" payment mechanisms; methods of payment in e-commerce; online securities brokerage; bringing the insurance industry to the Internet; and more.

For attorneys who advise banks, brokerage firms, insurance companies, IT service providers and those charged by their companies with initiating Web-based delivery of financial products, E-Commerce: Financial Products and Services will prove an extremely helpful starting point and reference for handling any issue.
