The increasing volume of Shari'ah-compliant business transactions backed by Islamic financial arrangements and the widespread use of the Internet and information technology make a good understanding of Islamic e-commerce law and practice very important. Being a developing area, good literature is not in abundance and it is the aim of this book to meet the need.

This book gives a practical and enlightening comparison of Islamic and modern legal principles as they may apply to the field of e-commerce.

  • Part I sets out the general principles of e-commerce law which include ethics in e-commerce and the sources of e-commerce law.
  • Part II discusses practical matters such as Internet marketing and advertising, virtual stores and payment systems as well as personal rights and the protection of privacy
  • Part III explores the practices of e-commerce law. These include the components of an e-contract, the principles governing data protection and the concept and practical application of digital signatures
  • Part IV surveys offences and liabilities in e-commerce, particularly the problem with hackers and torts in e-commerce dealings
  • Applied Islamic e-Commerce is illuminating and provides valuable guidance from the comparative Islamic and modern law standpoint on practical issues which arise in the conduct of e-commerce. A book that should not be missed by lawyers, business owners, in-house legal counsels, finance and business advisors.
