International Business Transactions
Topic One: the challenge(s) brought by trade in services and digital products to International Business Law and your suggested solution(s) or approach(es) to these challenges.
The traditional law relating to international business regulates goods. In recent years, however, the fast development of international business in services and in digital products has significantly challenged the content and application of traditional international business law. For example, in United States v. Eurodif S.A. (page 568 of the textbook), the US Supreme Court has to consider whether contracts for enriched uranium are for the sale of goods or services. Similarly, is the issue of whether downloading Harry Potter e-books online is trade in goods, services or something else. Do you think CISG can deal with
the ambiguous watershed among traditional goods, services and digital products? If yes, why? If not, what is your solution?
