Internet User's Guide to E-Commerce Policies

I have been curious about e-commerce ever since I heard about it many years ago! And I have been wanting to know more about it. Fortunately there is now a book that has been published, entitled Internet User's Guide to E-Commerce Policies, which is the first book in the E-commerce for Entrepreneurs series written by Ms. Janette Toral of DigitalFilipino.com. We need this kind of reference and guidance as current and future e-entrepreneurs so that we will not be e-dealing in the dark, and to be able to do commerce within legal bounds. At the same time it is good to be well informed about what we can do in case something not so pleasant happens. So this book will be a welcome addition to information on e-commerce stuff, which is still insufficient to address the many issues related to e-commerce esp. on legislation. Kudos to Ms. Janette for all her efforts in coming up with this series.

Here is a preview of the book's contents:

* Chapter 1: Introduction
