Digital Contracts: is code really law? Validity and enforcement of agreements in the digital world
About
Smart Contracts and similar digital instruments have been regarded by some as digital instruments that will replace paper-based agreements. Issues, however, rise when faced with legal validity and enforceability in a court of law. From the digitally recorded parties' intent to the self-enforcing functionality, a digitally recorded agreement seem to clash with contract law, ownership and dispute resolution principles. The exponential growth of digital transactions and digital life, in general, requires those question to be answered in order to guarantee legal certainty in the digital world.
