The development of modern means of communication had a multifaceted impact on business life thinks to computing technologies mechanization and framework of simplifying electronic transactions. The same effect is extended to the legal status of the parties of the commercial transactions, both internally and externally, which necessitated the establishment of legal rules within a protectionist philosophy that governs the commercial market while determining the relationship and responsibilities between the parties to the market.
Therefore the study of the functions of public authorities in establishing the rules of electronic commerce law was based on a critical method that seeks to compare the level of modern legislation with the aim of protecting consumer legal rights and achieving a qualitative level of service, as well as seeking to reduce obstacles to the mobility of electronically conducted business processes and addressing abuses and disputes arising from different legal positions and conflicts of interest arising from business operations.
The study concluded with a set of findings and recommendations aimed at reformulating the philosophy of the state’s role in facing the spread of technical means into various sectors of public life, especially the commercial sector, by getting rid of its passive role, and intervening in a rational way in which it assumes its responsibilities by setting protective rules for all parties to electronic transactions.
