Abstract

Online dispute resolution systems can be effective in a way that courts, mostly, cannot, because they operate on much smaller costs. When connected to self-enforcement mechanisms, ODR systems could create a global law without a state, a whole new, independent and transnational legal order: the Ius Numericum.

Keywords: Online dispute resolution, cyberspace, Internet, e-commerce, arbitration, non-binding arbitration, mediation, negotiation, self-enforcement, effectiveness, private legal systems

JEL Classification: K4, K40, K2, K20
