"Early treatment of computer law was no more than the application of existing principles to novel sets of facts. Today, it has been recognized generally that computing technology does indeed give rise to unique legal problems which are not resolvable by applying existing legal principles. This is particularly apparent where transactions are carried out through the exchange of digital information rather than human interaction. The developing law which seeks to resolve these problems is at the heart of the latest edition of this book, now established as a standard text on computer law for students, practitioners, and business in general for whom information technology is an integral part of their daily activities."--BOOK JACKET.
