Non-contractual disputes are basically those disputes that arise due to non-observance of any statutory obligation on part of the parties to the transaction.

Dispute over Copyright:- The enterprise might be liable for copyright infringement if it uses copyrighted material in excess of fair use, and without permission of the copyright holder.

Failure in Data protection:- The enterprise may be liable for sharing or revealing confidential data of customers, as discussed in the segment on Privacy.

Right of free expression:- The enterprise may be subject to defamation suits for defamatory material posted online.

Competition law, Domain name disputes:- The enterprise may be subject to trademark infringement suits if it infringes a registered otherwise legally recognized trademark or domain name.

Henceforth, it is significant to note that although many of the issues such as jurisdictional issues, choice of law issue, high cost of cross-jurisdictional litigation issue, which arise in relation to the different categories of disputes, are similar, the difficulties are perhaps more pronounced in respect of Business to Consumer transactional disputes which are often of small monetary value. Traditional methods of resolving cross jurisdictional commercial disputes, such as international commercial arbitration, are often too costly, inconvenient and burdensome in the context of consumer disputes.
