The United States (“U.S.”) and the European Union (“EU”) offer contrasting approaches to contract formation in Cyberspace. Two foci can be identified with EU law: (1) consumer protection and (2) market harmonisation. The American approach, however, is characterized by self-regulation and economic rationale. This Article examines and compares the EU and U.S. regulatory approaches to electronic contracting.
