Forwarding is he process and consequence of forwarding (send something that was received previously). Sending, meanwhile, is a verb which refers to getting something to be moved to another place.
For example: “Have you received my reshipment? It is an envelope with several invoices and other documents inside “, “The postal forwarding allows me to receive in my country house the letters that are sent to my address in the city”, “Now I forward the email to you so you can read what the manager’s idea is”.
The notion of forwarding appears frequently in the field of computing. When a person receives a email, you have the possibility of resend to other users. This means that the same e-mail that reaches you is sent, through the forwarding action, to different people.
Suppose a woman receives information by email about an offer from a hotel. Because this person is planning the vacation with her family, she decides to forward the message to her husband and son. Thanks to this forwarding, these two relatives will also receive the email in question and will have access to the information.
The usual thing is that the email system includes in the subject some type of reference A that indicates that the message has been forwarded by another user. In this way, when a person forward an e-mail, the abbreviation may appear in the subject RV (forwarding) or FW (forward).
Abuse of the email forwarding option can lead to what is known as spam, that is, unwanted or offensive messages, for example. There are people who enjoy generating these chains with different themes, generally with a humorous tone or in search of awareness with respect to a specific problem; in other words, they forward messages containing jokes or interesting information about a particular topic, hoping that their contacts will do the same to continue distributing them.
In the field of Private international right, the concept of forwarding is understood as a mechanism that aims to solve conflicts negative jurisdiction, that is, those that take place when a minimum of two laws of different national legal systems appear, none of which attributes the necessary competence to resolve them but rather gives it to a foreigner.
The forwarding applies to private law cases in which there is a relationship with relevant foreign elements and is carried out when the rule conflict is sent from one country to another twice, that is, it goes from the first to a second and reaches a third. It should be noted that the country in which the matter is brought to trial is called forum.
Professor Mario Ramírez Necochea, specialized in the subject, recognizes the following two types of forwarding, depending on the amount of legislation involved:
* first grade forwarding: also known as return forwarding and refers to the case in which the conflict rule of the country in which it is judged refers to a right from another country which, in turn, refers to the first, thereby generating a round trip;
* second degree forwarding: it is a situation in which the referral of the conflict rule occurs from one country to another and from the latter to a third party.
Although it is not included in the previous list, another type of forwarding is also contemplated in which a response is sent by correspondence for a immediate return.
