The Establishment of a Regulatory Framework Corresponding to the Cross- border Nature of Transactions in a Digital Platform

Recent technological development has transformed the industrial structure through modulization, softwarization, and networking of multiple industries. Particularly, business activities conducted through digital platforms offered by a provider—internet auctions, services of flea market applications, and activities enabled by the sharing economy—are highly significant. Furthermore, cross-border development of such electronic transactions through digital platforms is expected, since information can cross borders easily on the Internet. This research project deals with cross-border electronic transactions through digital platforms from the perspective of various legal fields.
