Abstract

Discusses the Singapore Court of Appeal ruling in Quoine Pte Ltd v B2C2 Ltd, clarifying the extent to which traditional rules of contract law, such as the rules on unilateral mistake, apply to automated contracts. Reviews the nature of the mistake involved, and the court's approach to the nature of the parties' contractual relations, actual knowledge and the algorithm's determinacy. Considers whether Quoine's approach may cause grave injustice.
