The second edition of this title concentrates on aspects of law which are of special importance to the burgeoning arena of electronic commerce. These issues can be grouped into three main sections, reflected in the organisation of this book: intellectual property; e-commerce; and content liability. Within these sections, each author provides an analysis of the underlying principles governing the law, an account of recent case law and policy developments, and a practical guide to the way the current law operates.
