International Policy Working Group

Hal Burman, who chairs the International (a/k/a Global) Policy working group, tells us of his plans for their meeting (Westin, Windsor Room 2nd Floor, 4:00 to 5:00 PM FRIDAY):
I just got back from an extended set of meetings, the first of which was a two-week negotiation that concluded the new Uncitral E-Commerce Convention. [For the Chicago meeting,] we have two main topics.

First, whether Cyberspace should support implementation of the new UN Convention, and if so, what position would we consider on any possible changes to UETA but especially the Federal E-Sign and Global E-Commerce Act? Are there "fixes" to the Federal Act we should promote?

Secondly, should we seek to use the new convention to harmonize e-commerce basic law within Native American or other US-related territories?
