Title Contractual Frameworks for Enterprise Networks and Virtual Organisations in E-Learning
Abstract The increasing demand for business collaborations over the internet (eBusiness) requires prospective partners to set up their cooperation in a timely fashion, without loosing time with negotiating complicated legal contracts. On the other hand, if problems arise, collaborators will want to fall back on a contractual framework that adequately addresses the main legal issues. Electronic collaborations cover a wide variety of application domains, potentially involving parties from different countries and thus from different legal backgrounds - much more complex than what most approaches to electronic contracts are able to cover, since they mainly focus on specifying selected operational terms. This paper will therefore outline an approach towards a contractual framework that combines operational electronic contracts with a more long-term legal framework, which caters for both organisational and business issues of electronic collaborations. This will be exemplified with a business scenario in the field of eLearning.
