The meeting focused on selected legal and technical work items, including legal gap checklist, technical gap checklist and mutual recognition mechanism for trade-related data and documents in electronic form. The outcome of the meeting will be used as an input for the Legal and Technical Working Groups (LTWGs) of the Interim Intergovernmental Steering Group on Cross-border Paperless Trade Facilitation in further advancing delivery of supporting documents of the draft road map.

Prof. Xue is invited to give a keynote presentation on “Mutual recognition mechanism for trade related data and documents in electronic form under the Framework Agreement on Cross-border Paperless Trade”. She gave a comprehensive review of the Article 8 of the Framework Agreement and proposed the potential institutional arrangement to enable mutual recognition within the legal framework. She emphasized that whatever technical means deployed to achieve the effect the legal consistency under the Agreement has to be assured through institutional arrangement.

薛虹教授在新时代新规则国内首场网络法公开课

互联网法治建设是网络强国战略的重要组成部分,已经并将继续发挥基础性支撑作用。当前,中国特色社会主义进入新时代,网络法理论、实践、制度的发展迎来了新机遇。运用好新形式有效传播网络法治的重要理论和发展成果,做到引人入胜、润物无声,是持续、深入推进互联网法治建设的重要保障。

1994年《计算机信息系统安全保护条例》颁布,为互联网产业的良性发展打下坚实基础。展览以此为开端,历数了信息网络传播权入法、个人信息保护加强、《网络安全法》《电子商务法》出台等20多年网络法治进程中的重大事件,全面展示了网络法治构建及规则演变的历史进程。20年来,中国互联网产业规模持续发展,正成为全球竞争的新制高点,中国互联网经历了从PC互联网到移动互联网的迁移,并正加速由消费领域向生产领域拓展,以工业互联网、智能制造等为代表的新模式、新业态不断涌现。

2018年10月26日,以“新时代,新规则”为主题,由中国法学会网络与信息法学研究会主办,腾讯研究院与同济大学法学院承办的“网络法公开课”全国巡讲第一站在同济大学举行。这是国内首场以网络信息法为专题的公开课,旨在深入宣传、贯彻习近平总书记关于网络强国和网络空间法治化的重要思想,通过政法新媒体的创新形式广泛传播新时代网络法治成果,让更多青年学生以及社会大众了解互联网法治建设历程,掌握更加全面、前沿的网络信息法理论知识和产业趋势。公开课引起莘莘学子的踊跃报名和广泛关注。

与常见的学术报告、课堂授课形式不同,公开课采用国际上较为流行的传播科学、文化的TED演讲新形式。监管部门、学界和产业界的7位嘉宾,就法律与产业关系、平台责任、人工智能的法律挑战等前沿交叉话题,多角度切入网络信息法,在很短的时间内把复杂的问题讲透彻、讲鲜活,让在场600多名同济师生快速了解网络法面貌,并激发了学生们深入研究的热情。

北京师范大学法学院教授、互联网政策与法律研究中心主任薛虹在讲座中提出,我们习以为常的网购行为,实际上是与智能合同系统进行交易,这个智能合同系统一方面是高端的自动化系统,完全按照既定的程序加以设定和运行;另一方面也是低端的人工智能,可以按照程序设计完成一定的认知、选择、分析和判断。如果法律对此不加以规范,可能出现侵害消费者权益的后果。刚刚出台的《电子商务法》确立了消费者提交订单并支付价款导致合同成立的权利,并对经营者施加了公平设置智能合同系统的义务,通过制度设计让消费者更有力量。
