According to the 2011-2012 China E-commerce Legal Report released by the China E-commerce Research Center yesterday, legal disputes in the field of e-commerce are mainly concentrated in unfair competition, industry monopoly, intellectual property infringement, contract disputes, labor disputes, property disputes, Administrative penalties, online pyramid schemes, etc. After more than ten years of development, e-commerce has gradually penetrated into people's daily life. However, there is no current situation of laws related to online commodity transactions in my country, which makes domestic e-commerce price wars, false promotions, express chaos, after-sales service, information leakage and other issues increasingly prominent.

Cao Lei, director of the China Electronic Commerce Research Center, said that there are two e-commerce regulations being formulated, one is the "Regulations on the Supervision of Online Commodity Transactions and Services" led by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, and the other is the "Online Retail Management Regulations" led by the Ministry of Commerce. The former is expected to be issued this year. According to the report, 23.08 per cent of the companies surveyed said they were very aware of the relevant e-commerce laws and were concerned about them at any time, while 76.92 per cent said they were generally aware of some basic rules and principles.

Lawyer Yao Xiaojuan, a special researcher at the E-commerce Research Center, believes that from the survey results, companies do not have a deep understanding of e-commerce laws. The reason is that enterprises do not pay enough attention to the law, and the publicity and guidance of the government and industry associations on e-commerce law is not yet in place. E-commerce is in the initial stage of development, and the healthy development of e-commerce depends on the reasonable guidance and support of the government. Therefore, in the future period of time, the government's support for e-commerce needs to be strengthened.

In an interview with a reporter from the Securities Times, Cao Lei said that personal electronic information is divided into three categories: the first category is regular information, including name, age, work, etc.; the second category is communication information, including address, mobile phone number, email, etc.; The third category is account information, including hobbies, transaction records, etc. At present, the infringement of the second type of personal electronic information is more common in the e-commerce industry, and many well-known e-commerce websites have been exposed to sell user information. On December 28 last year, the 30th meeting of the Standing Committee of the Eleventh National People's Congress passed the Draft Decision on Strengthening the Protection of Online Information, which means that China is following international practices and formulating special laws to protect citizens' personal electronic information.
