Computer Law & Security Review

19 October 2015

In her article to the Computer Law & Security Review, Xiaoyan Zhang, Counsel (New York, USA), looks at the similarities and differences between China and Hong Kong’s e-signature laws.

The comprehensive regulation of the usage and legal validity of e-signatures in the two jurisdiction is surveyed. China, however, is more specific on the types of e-signatures that are recognised by the courts and is also more accepting of foreign issued e-signature certificates.

Such differences, Xiaoyan surmises, may be due to China’s determination to facilitate e-commerce as it aims to become the world’s biggest online market.
