Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law reflects the author’s familiarity not only with the law but also with the industry itself. As the industry has expanded and grown in complexity so has the law, and, so has Sookman. From a single volume as first published in 1989 to the present five volumes of detailed, comprehensive coverage, Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law provides the only current source of Canadian information that comprehensively analyzes these issues.

The continued growth of the Internet as a means of doing business ensures that eventually there will be no “e” in eCommerce, and almost any practitioner advising commercial clients will need to have an understanding of this law. As the foremost Canadian authority on the law of computers, the Internet and eCommerce, Sookman is frequently referred to and applied by the courts:-

  • Delrina Corp. v. Triolet Systems Inc., Ontario Court of Appeal (2002)
  • Conexsys Systems inc. c. Aime Star Marketing inc. (2003) and Mensys Business Solution Centre Ltd. c. MRC de Drummond (2002), Québec Superior Court
  • Angoss International Ltd. v. R., Tax Court of Canada (1999) and Northwest Marine Technology Inc. v. Crosby (1996), British Columbia Supreme Court
  • Union Industries Inc. v. Beckett Packaging Ltd., Ontario Court of Justice (General Division) (1993)
  • North American Systemshops Ltd. v. King, Alberta Court of Queen's Bench (1989).
Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law covers a wide range of current topics, including:-
  • Electronic Contracting
  • Privacy and Data Protection issues
  • Jurisdictional and Regulatory issues relating to the Internet
  • Electronic Evidence
  • Law Reform
  • Consumer protection on the Internet
  • Using and Protecting Trade-marks and Domain Names
  • Protecting Copyright on the Internet
  • Glossary of legal and technical definitions of technological terms drawn from Canadian, U.S. and European sources
  • Useful appendices of:-
    • Relevant statutes and regulations from Canada and abroad
    • International treaties, model Acts and proposals.
Sookman: Computer, Internet and Electronic Commerce Law is also the leading text on acquiring and protecting information technology including:-
  • Copyright protection for software, databases, webpages and sites
  • Creation of compatible software
  • Remedies for copyright infringement and a unique analysis of how to establish copyright infringement in cyberspace
