E-Payment Services in China: The UnionPay Case

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.

About the Speaker:
Professor Jane K. Winn, Charles I. Stone Professor at the University of Washington School of Law and a Fulbright Scholar, is a leading international authority on electronic commerce law, and governance issues arising in the global information economy. She has published and lectured widely on electronic commerce law developments in the United States, the European Union, and China, and many of her publications are available for download at http://ssrn.com/author=334081. She is co-author of the Law of Electronic Commerce, the leading reference work in the field, and is an expert on international trade law, commercial and banking law, and legal issues of information security.
