The purpose of the following work is the identification and analysis of the legal and technological challenges that transnational electronic commerce carried out over open computermediated networks presents to legal systems based on territorial principles in order to delineate global and systematic solutions to this new non-territorial commercial environment. A possible global, systematic and technologically oriented legal solution will create a new commercial environment safer for consumers, more predictable for businesses and with equal opportunities of access and growth for all countries.
