Portuguese Abstract: O caráter cada vez mais complexo da trama digital e o crescente número de conflitos nessa seara desafiam nossa capacidade de compreensão. Os autores propõem uma taxonomia dos modos de comércio digital, analisam as áreas em que existem conflitos e comparam as táticas utilizadas pelas principais potências digitais.
English Abstract: The digital transformation has facilitated old modes of trade and business models and enabled the creation of entirely new ones. In this note, we suggest a classification of the modes in which trade is conducted as it progressively shifts into the digital or digitally-facilitated realm; review the list of areas where trade resistance has been encountered and how these are addressed in trade agreements; and contrast the tactics of the major players as revealed in their framing of regulations for digital and digitally-enabled trade in the regional trade agreements in which they are engaged.
