The jurisdictional aspects of E-commerce in the Russian Federation and the European Union: a comparative legal aspect
2019
The phenomenon of e-commerce is that this type of activity takes place exclusively in the virtual area. Due to the globalization of technological processes, we note significant trends in the application of the transboundary nature of the relations studied. The Internet is a complex architecture, according to which the definition of jurisdiction is rather complicated. The additional significance of the problem is due to the speed of information distribution and its availability. Thus, the network infrastructure allows for various combinations of jurisdictions.

The author conducts a comprehensive analysis of the jurisdictional aspects of the legal regulation of electronic commerce of a comparative nature. The systems of Europe and Russia were taken as legal systems for study. This choice was made due to the economic backgrounds reflected in statistics, as well as a single legal family. Moreover, earlier the Russian scientific doctrine did not contain studies aimed directly at comparing the approaches of the legislators of the studied legal systems. Thus, the study revealed key similarities and differences between the European and Russian approaches.

In the study, the author explores the European and Russian approach to the designation of the concept of e-commerce. Further, it analyzes theoretical approaches to the concept of jurisdiction and analyzes the three traditional forms of definition of jurisdiction in the context of European and Russian legislation.
