Lilian Edwards, Charlotte Waelde
Hart, 2000 - Computers - 396 pages
Following the very successful publication of their earlier book Law and the Internet (Hart Publishing,1997) the same editorial team have now assembled a number of specialist authors to write about those aspects of law which are of special importance to the burgeoning arena of electronic commerce. These issues can be grouped into three main sections, which is reflected in the organisation of this book: intellectual property; e-commerce; and content liability. Within these sections, each author provides an expert analysis of the underlying principles governing the law, an account of recent case law and policy developments, and a practical guide to the way the current law operates. This book will be essential reading for practitioners, teachers and students interested in internet law and practice.
