Document pages: 11 pages

Abstract: This article discusses the legal implications of electronic data interchange in the area of maritime law. The author suggests there is now a need in New Zealand to consider legal problems like the definition of a “document” the “signing” of contracts, and the problem of the bill of lading as a negotiable document of title. Although this article considers the issues in relation to maritime law, the implications for other areas of legal relations in commercial activities are clear.
