Online dispute resolution (ODR) allows users with civil disputes to forgo court proceedings and attorneys by using web-based technologies and the Internet to resolve their conflicts. Although early websites offering ODR services for more complex issues seemed to stall, ODR found its niche in e-commerce disputes. One of the most successful examples of this is eBay, whose Resolution Center now resolves over 60 million disputes each year, 90 percent of which are completed without the help of attorneys, using only the ODR software.
