A complex mix of national and international regulatory regimes govern the information industries. Information professionals and publishers are ever more involved in the production use of electronic resources. A familiarity with the need for regulation, its various forms, its framework and compliance strategies is vital to ensure that they stay on the right side of the law.

This authoritative handbook, written by leading experts in the field, offers a practical guide to the full range of legal issues relating to information work and the knowledge industries. Aiming to make the law accessible, it provides a first port of call for information professionals and publishers wishing to know where they stand, and will alert them to the potential pitfalls surrounding such activities as publishing on the internet, direct marketing and doing business on the web.

This second edition is comprehensively revised to cover the many changes in the law that have occurred recently, and there are completely new chapters covering patents, trade marks, risk management, IT contracts and negotiating licences.

Information managers and providers in all sectors should make surethat they have access to this indispensable guide to the legal issues that affect their work, as should students on information studies courses.
