EDI means "electronic data interchange." EDI was one of the earliest kinds of electronic commerce. EDI was and is used to form legal contracts,
In the 1980s and 1990s, EDI was notable -- from a
legal perspective -- because it gave rise to contracts formed by electronic (computer) communication, rather than by traditional oral, paper or telegraphic communication.
"EDI and American Law: A Practical Guide" was the first book published in North America on the topic of electronic contract law. I researched and wrote this book under sponsorship of TDCC: The Electronic Data Interchange Association (which is no longer in existence). This book served as the intellectual foundation for my later book "The Law of Electronic Commerce," the first edition of which was published by Little, Brown 1991.
My blogs and other online postings constitute the "Online Update Service" for the book, "The Law of Electronic Commerce." Many of those blogs and postings are accessible at https://plus.google.com/113714308152841400614/about
