Beyond E-commerce, the new digital economy is at the basis of internet start-ups and also new collaborative business models that connect potential buyers (consumers) and service offerings online.
These new business models face many regulatory challenges that may compromise their success, and which mainly relate to old pre-existing regulations thought out for the traditional off-line world, complex issues arising from applying/adapting those regulations, and the fierce resistance of traditional local stakeholders already present in the market.
