Abstract
This paper sums up the legislative value of the functional-equivalent approach by analyzing its specific application in the electronic commerce legislation, and believes that the approach can better deal with traditional legal obstacles which the indirect electronic commerce faces. However, with the rapid development of direct electronic commerce, the limitations of the functional-equivalent approach have begun to magnify. On the basis of the limitations, the authors argue that the legislation of electronic commerce shall be transformed from the dual-track system of functional equivalence to a new stage of uniform law appropriate for the traditional and electronic commerce ultimately.
