What does the "internationalization of the yuan" really mean in practice, for importers/exporters and foreign investors ? How are legal issues approached and addressed in negotiations with Chinese business partners ? How to get ﬁnancing in China, and is it the same for a company to list in Hong Kong or in Shanghai ? Should one rely on normal business instincts when dealing in or with China, or is there a "Chinese exception" in all business matters ? etc. This course is based on a practice-totheory approach : the lecturers derive their views and analysis of the Chinese legal and economic system from their practical experience working in China, on Chinarelated projects, and/or with Chinese clients.

Armed with this theoretical background, students will then be asked to consider how these values are reﬂected in the regulatory design of the online environment. This examination will be conducted by considering a number of case studies relating to online privacy, defamation, criminal activity and market power. The course concludes by examining the topical and politically charged question of whether online providers should be allowed to vary service conditions by types of content.
