UnionPay has been the dominant provider for clearing and settlement of RMB-denominated electronic payment services in China. Last year, a WTO panel ruled on a US-PRC electronic payment services dispute. The WTO UnionPay dispute highlights the degree to which private self-regulatory organizations have become de facto regulators in global markets, and how technological innovation and national cultures shape the strategic responses of different governments to those developments.
In this presentation, Professor Jane Winn, a leading international authority on electronic and commerce law, will share her insights on the specific WTO provisions at issue, as well as highlighting larger issues such as using e-payment service providers as competing “national champions,” the public and private dimensions of global payment networks, and the emergence of a new global commercial law based on technical standards, contracts and harmonized business processes.
