1. Law for business consists of a set of required norms of behavior. The essence of law is that it commands behavior under threat of punishment or sanction. Tax law requires the payment of money to the government; there is no choice. Contracts are entered into voluntarily, but once entered into they may be enforced through the courts. Many laws have no particular ethical content. Many laws require ethical behavior, and, in rare cases, some laws may require unethical behavior. Frequently the law allows the businessperson the choice to be either ethical or unethical. In those cases the question arises: Should the law require ethical behavior?

1. The doctrine of freedom of contract has always been respected by the Law, which allows parties to provide for the terms and conditions that will govern the relationship. The Principles of European Contract Law, however, state that this freedom is subject to the requirements of good faith, fair dealing and the mandatory rules established under the Principles. Accordingly, the law has intervened to guide parties as to which terms they can contract on to effectively balance the inequality in their bargaining power, and ensure optimum protection for the consumer who, most times, has limited expertise in the field. Electronic contracts are no different, as they are subject to laws designed to ensure protection of the consumer. Significantly, the law imposes additional protection, beyond what obtains under traditional paper contracts, particularly for the consumer who elects to buy goods he has not inspected. These protective measures are contained mainly in the European Union (EU) legisl...
