This is the third edition of a successful book which offers students and practitioners an up-to-date overview of developments in Internet law and practice. The editors have once again assembled a team of specialist authors to write about those aspects of Internet law which are of special importance in the global regulation of the Internet and focussed around four principal themes - e-commerce, privacy and data protection, cyber-crime and Internet Security, and intellectual property.
This edition incorporates for the first time new areas such as data protection, privacy and electronic surveillance, cyber crime and cyber security, jurisdiction and dispute resolution online, forensic evidence issues, open source licenses and the IP problems of search engines.
The section on IP contains clearer and more comprehensive analysis of digital media issues and IP and the new edition also takes account of all new cases and legislation, including the draft of the revised EC electronic commerce directive and the Audio Visual Media Services Directive.
The book is easy to read, and...has been well edited...and flows smoothly through the various topics. ...the book provides a worthwhile overview of this developing area of law throughout the world.
