Abstract:An interactive website can today fulfill many of the functions of a traditional place of business with physical premises and staff, as contracts can be both entered into and performed through it. This gives rise to the question whether a website can, under certain conditions, constitute an establishment or place of business for the purposes of jurisdiction and applicable law pursuant to the EC Regulation No 44/2001 on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters and the 1980 Rome Convention on the Law Applicable to Contractual Obligations.
