The 5th edition of this groundbreaking work provides a clear and authoritative explanation of the law regulating the internet, both in the UK and globally. Written in a jargon-free style, it helps identify the practical legal questions likely to arise and explains how to deal with them effectively.

Analysis of the latest case law is a particular feature of this new edition, as the courts address the uncertainties created by new technology. Recent judgments – from both the UK and other jurisdictions – are explained throughout the text.

  • Takes a comparative approach to themes that have arisen in multiple jurisdictions, as well as providing detailed coverage of English law
  • Addresses key areas of contention such as copyright, trade marks, domain names, cross-border liability, internet payments, online contracts, advertising, defamation and data protection in an international context
  • Provides guidance on emerging areas of importance such as social media, encryption, obscenity, freedom of speech, tax and competition law
  • Deals with key international issues such as jurisdictional questions, applicable law and EU internal market questions
  • Includes contributions from every major European jurisdiction, as well as the USA, Japan, China, and many others
