The aim of this paper is to discuss the legal and technical issues of creating legally binding contracts in a digital ecosystem and to present the solution created for the DBE (Digital Business Ecosystem) project. We investigate the legal implications of electronic contracts and digital signatures, and also take a brief look at the types of clauses that make up a contract. The DBE contract model for creating contracts and contract templates is presented, along with the tools created for editing these contracts as part of the DBE project.
