Hi Tsung Wei Wong, Are these e-transactions laws of any important? It is true that they make online contracts enforceable and give certain predictability to businesses and consumers alike who are conducting e-transactions, but did they really assist in increasing e-commerce revenues in any way in the Arab world? It seems not. I believe that the U.A.E and other Arab countries like Tunisia, Jordan and Bahrain had these laws, but there is too much fuss about them. They are no single application of these laws in any court of law, and they are there to attract investors nothing more. E-commerce is not about having a law out there and it is much more than that... Regards,

Companies and individuals can generally deny being the author of emails and faxes since there is no way to identify the sender of either.
