84.5% of respondents are concerned about E-Commerce law
Huawei Group programmer Chen Yuhua has some understanding of the “E-Commerce Law”. “Now everyone who is not looking for purchasing online? “E-Commerce Law” reduces the profit of purchasing, if they raise the price, they will lose the price advantage.”
Fu Liang, an independent analyst in the telecommunications industry, said that there is always a problem of lack of supervision in the field of E-Commerce. It is necessary to strengthen the construction of relevant laws and regulations. Legislation on E-Commerce has actually been called for.
According to the survey, 84.5% of respondents are concerned about the E-Commerce Law, and 15.5% of respondents are not concerned.
Li Jiangyu, deputy director of the E-Commerce Research Center of Beijing Normal University, said that the annual E-Commerce holiday promotion will cause many problems, such as fake goods, long delivery time, fraud, etc., and consumer rights protection is difficult, such as it is difficult to find applicable laws, search The evidence is also very difficult.
In the survey, 62.9% of the respondents pointed out that there are “brush sales”, “brushing praise” and “deleting bad reviews” in the E-Commerce field. Other chaos is: false propaganda (65.0%), “big data killing” (47.9%), bundled tying (37.9%), micro-business violation (35.7%), deposit illegal use (29.1%), Personal information leakage (38.9%), complaints rights defense difficulties (30.6%) and platform evasion responsibility (22.8%).
“The phenomenon of purchasing chaotic prices and earning large profits is quite serious. Many products are cheaper to buy than foreign ones. The profits earned by purchasing are many.” Chen Yuhua pointed out.
Fu Liang analysis, E-Commerce has broken the traditional information flow logistics, “for example, traditional furniture to go to the furniture store, there are problems go to the furniture store. Through the E-Commerce two sides are not seen, how to return the product quality problems, etc. , all need to be solved.”
Li Jiangyu pointed out that E-Commerce is constantly changing its original business model in the development process and requires special legislation. The introduction of this law in China is a bold innovation.
In the survey, 58.3% of the respondents were confident that the E-Commerce Law would help solve the chaos of the E-Commerce platform. 15.6% of the respondents admitted that they did not have much confidence, and 26.1% of the respondents said it was difficult to say.
“The introduction of the “E-Commerce Law” has regulated some issues that are obvious to all, mainly old ones.” Li Jiangyu said, “In the past, relying on business consciousness, it has now become a legal compulsory, and it has a very restrictive effect on the business behavior of enterprises. If consumers are treated unfairly, there will be legal support. The government wants to manage and has laws to follow.”
Wang Xiang (pseudonym), a graduate student in law at a university in Beijing, believes that the introduction of the “Electronic Commerce Law” is a benchmark that clarifies the responsibilities of relevant institutions and relevant departments. “For example, privacy issues, if there are illegal E-Commerce operators, they can be punished according to law.”
Fu Liang said that the introduction of the “Electronic Commerce Law” can make the business behavior in the E-Commerce environment more standardized, and the customer’s information is more protected, prompting the E-Commerce platform to deal with the problem from a global perspective.
64.2% of respondents expect E-Commerce law to introduce supporting regulations as soon as possible
Chen Yuhua believes that the introduction of the “E-Commerce Law” can regulate the purchasing industry, allowing participants to fulfill their duty to pay taxes, and can also break the monopoly of the purchasing market to some extent.
Among the provisions of the “E-Commerce Law”, 60.8% of the respondents were concerned about the requirement of “pick praise” and “deletion of bad reviews”, and 49.2% of respondents were concerned about the requirement of “precise push” to obtain user consent first, 47.9 % of respondents are concerned about the rules governing platform review responsibilities. Others include: the micro-business model is included in the scope of supervision (43.9%), which clarifies the platform responsibility of self-operated goods (39.5%), guarantees the right of users to freely inquire, correct, delete and cancel personal information (33.9%), and regulates electricity. Business tying behavior (32.1%), regulation of E-Commerce promotion “two choices one” phenomenon (23.3%), strengthening intellectual property protection (23.0%) and online stores are required to pay taxes according to law (18.9%).
Fu Liang told reporters that the annual E-Commerce sales are very large. In the case of relevant legislation, the government departments and related institutions need to consider the difficulty of implementation. “For example, shops, sellers, and courier companies in different provinces, how to supervise, and where the industrial and commercial departments and law enforcement departments handle, need to be further clarified.”
Regarding the “E-Commerce Law”, 64.2% of respondents expect to issue supporting regulations and regulations as soon as possible, and 65.9% of respondents expect to study relevant judicial interpretations as soon as possible, and 58.9% of respondents believe that they should pay attention to maintaining the openness of definitions. Being able to accommodate emerging business models, 39.8% of respondents expect to strengthen law enforcement and effectively protect consumer rights.
Wang Xiang believes that the most important thing in implementing the E-Commerce law is to implement it. After all, any law will face many unforeseen problems in the implementation process, so it is only possible to implement it effectively if it is improved from the details. “And there are still a lot of gray areas in E-Commerce. There are no clearly defined areas, such as how much money needs to be taxed, and how to define the difference between tourism and purchasing, etc., all need to be improved.”
“Actually, these problems are also involved in the original management. Now they are clearly defined by the law. I hope that they can be implemented and not left blank.” Li Jiangyu said.
