ADR as Public Policy: Domestic and International Perspectives

First Paragraph

Among privately created online dispute resolution systems, the eBay Resolution Center stands alone. eBay’s process has resolved more disputes over a longer period of time than any other online dispute resolution process in the world. Launched in 1995, eBay was designed to be the largest global online marketplace, evolving from its roots in consumer-to-consumer (C2C) auctions into Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to- Consumer (B2C) verticals. After it acquired PayPal in 2002, eBay set about building a robust, end-to-end Trust and Safety infrastructure.
