1.8. Civil ‘E-Commerce’: Form of Transactions, Individuals Identification, Official Registration, Evidences

Thursday, May 16
14:30 - 16:30

Hall #4, General Staff Building (6-8, Dvortsovaya sq.)

Introduction of technologies providing for an absentee’s will remote declaration has increased by a factor of hundreds civil transactions turnover. Instant product or service purchase decisions an instant payments call for equally quick rights transition and obligations establishment.

The practice of 'electronic' civil turnover shows that it is important for a legal system not only to ensure quick government registration of rights and other legally binding actions but rather provide for their maximum incontestability.

Automated performance, remote voting at a general meeting,  as well as an 'electronic' power of attorney are all possible only upon prior identification of the person expressing his/her will remotely, in a technically-assisted manner.

May all and any transactions shift to the 'electronic' civil turnover? What will be the proportions of traditional 'paper' and electronic powers of attorney? And what is a notary’s place in the 'electronic' civil turnover? How can the identity of the person pressing OK button on your gadget be revealed? And what should be presented as a court evidence? What are the grounds for and the limits of electronic platform operator’s liability?
