In this article the author outlines some difficulties facing the cyber-shopper. These include the practical difficulties of enforcement and redress which arise when a cyber-shopper purchases a defective product from an overseas supplier, or when misleading information is placed on the internet by an overseas supplier. This article argues that some of these problems can and should be resolved by adapting existing laws in the specific areas of evidence and contract formation.
