E-commerce Law in the Arab World

Most of the e-commerce Arab laws issued so far concentrate on e-commerce, and electronic contracting, electronic signature, and evidencing contracts in cyberspace, but they do not specifically deal with many other issues that need to be regulated as well.

These include: domain names and its conflict with trademarks, copyright and the internet, eliminating the digital divide between the Arab countries and the technologically developed countries in relation to Information Communication Technologies (ICT), protecting privacy of individuals on the internet, modernizing administrative laws to prompt electronic exchange between government administrations, allowing companies to use the internet and other technologies to communicate with shareholders to simplify the process of corporate governance (e-corporate),cyber-crimes and many other issues as well.
