Bringing fairness to digital disputes in the United States

Riules that manage disputes can often determine who can fairly seek redress in the judicial process. The current rules governing civil disputes do not consider the rights and expectations of parties where disputes arise entirely online. The ability to redefine the rules of engagement is essential to address legal processes that have never adequately addressed the nature of disputes that arise entirely within the digital space. This is a discussion about adding a section to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to address unique issues and expectations of parties arising out of disputes that occur online. In addition, there may be some value to adding a section to the Uniform Commercial Code defining data as a "good." In both cases, the ability for the judicial process to more fairly address challenges given what is often an asymmetry of power of online conflict and civic disputes.
