Cyberspace and Internet has made it possible to access single information from multiple jurisdictions. It is also possible that for a single transaction, multiple countries may exercise jurisdiction. In other words, the conflict of law in cyberspace is most complicated in nature and very difficult to resolve.
The validity of electronic legal notices in India
and DMCA notice from India to other jurisdictions through e-mails is now well established. This makes it very easier to engage in legal proceedings from India to multiple jurisdictions. Similarly, Indian citizens and companies may also be involved at multiple jurisdictions in various civil and criminal proceedings.
Further, the position of US companies, India, conflict of laws and criminal liabilities
has also become clear these days. Even in the case of cyber laws, US companies and courts are applying US standards and are not following Indian standards. This is a classic situation that is occurring due to conflict of laws. This is also the reason why an international cyber law treaty is required to bring harmonious application of cyber law principles.
