This chapter assesses the changing face of B2C consumer contracts, the current regulatory landscape and the viability of the fragmented model of regulation adopted in the EU. It looks at the substantive rules applicable to consumer e-contracts, and see how those may need to be improved in order to adequately meet the objectives of consumer confidence, and the promotion of e-commerce, set by the European Commission.
