Please refer to the BusyInternet case study.
What dimensions of the law are likely to be most critical to the near term success of BusyInternet? How about longer term?
As far as I see in my country (i.e., Romania which is not a developing country, but also not quite far away from this status) justice takes too much to solve rather trivial cases. On the long term the main drawback (inspired from Romania's situation, too) can be the frequently change of legislation which could put his ventures at risk.
... my earlier reaction to Bogdan's statement.
One has to appreciate that IP law are emerging in a number of countries.The same goes for e-commerce laws and to some degree the laws regulating Telecoms eg VOIP. I feel in short term there could be hick-ups but in medium term the ‘issues” would be much more clear and defined.
From my perspective, Bogdan addresses a very important long-term dimension. Interesting that you are focusing on a legal process deficiency (see chart 2 provided in the module). What do you think: Are such process issues generally more important in the long run rather than in the short term (in other words: are substitive issues such as IP Law, Telecom Law, etc. more likely to be addressed under the heading "short term problems"?)
