Failure to comply with non-essential terms of a contract may now allow the innocent party to terminate a contract.. This article, by Lisa Vanderwal of Truman Hoyle Lawyers (http://www.trumanhoyle.com.au/) discusses the December 2007 High Court decision in Koompahtoo Local Aboriginal Land Council v Sanpine Pty Ltd [2007] HCA 61 where the court held that a sufficiently serious breach of a non-essential, or intermediate, term of a contract could in certain circumstances allow the innocent party to terminate a contract for repudiation.
Global electronic commerce revenue for 2000 was in the region of $286 billion; a figure which was expected to increase to $500 billion this year and to exceed $3 trillion in 2004. This rapid increase reflects the fact that electronic commerce has a number of advantages over paper-based commerce: in particular, speed and reducing the cost of doing business. This paper, from the UK Law Commission outlines the formal requirements as per UNCITRAL Model Laws on Electronic Commerce and the UK Electronic COmmerce Act. Despite being of UK origin, it is a great article for anyone involved in internatiional electronic commerce transactions.
