In­ter­net Court

Beijing Review - - This Week Society -

China’s first court spe­cial­iz­ing in In­ter­net-re­lated cases opened in the e-com­merce hub of Hangzhou, cap­i­tal of Zhe­jiang Prov­ince, on Au­gust 18 to cater to an in­creas­ing num­ber of on­line dis­putes.

The Hangzhou In­ter­net Court is han­dling on­line trade dis­putes and copy­right law­suits, with all the cases tried on­line.

Hangzhou is home to many In­ter­net com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing ecom­merce gi­ant Alibaba.

Ac­cord­ing to data from the China In­ter­net Net­work In­for­ma­tion Cen­ter, there were about 751 mil­lion ne­ti­zens and 724 mil­lion mo­bile In­ter­net users in China by the end of June.

As Chi­nese in­creas­ingly turn to on­line shop­ping and pay­ment, the In­ter­net court pro­vides a ju­di­cial guar­an­tee for main­tain­ing cy­ber se­cu­rity, re­solv­ing on­line dis­putes and pro­mot­ing the in­te­gra­tion of the In­ter­net with so­ci­ety and the econ­omy.
