eCommerce: A Practical Guide to the Law is an essential tool for both businesses and lawyers involved in electronic commerce. It includes checklists and practical advice on the principal pitfalls relating to the Internet and e-mail and how to exploit the new technologies to advantage. Written by a solicitor who advises on these issues on a daily basis, it seeks to provide a simple summary of the relevant legal issues. Importantly it is fully up-to-date and includes details of the Electronic Communications Act 2000, the EU Electronic Commerce Directive and distance selling regulations as well as other, more established, relevant statutes. All areas of eCommerce law - from shopping on the Internet to trade mark and domain name disputes and employment law to contract terms - are covered. Vitally, Susan Singleton avoids jargon and writes in an authoritative and yet accessible style, making this an invaluable resource for everyone facing the challenge of working in the new electronic environment.
