The White House, Memorandum on Electronic Commerce (July 1, 1997) (full-text).

Overview Edit

This Memorandum directed that executive department and agency heads should be guided in any future actions they take related to electronic commerce by the following principles:

  • In some areas, government involvement may prove necessary to facilitate electronic commerce and protect consumers. Where governmental involvement is necessary, its aim should be to support and enforce a predictable, consistent, and simple legal environment for commerce.
  • The Internet is emerging as a global marketplace. The legal framework supporting commercial transactions on the Internet should be governed by consistent principles across State, national, and international borders that lead to predictable results regardless of the jurisdiction in which a particular buyer or seller resides.
