  • recent case law on software patents and a consideration of the EU proposals for harmonization

  • new developments in data protection and the internet including cookies, spam and data retention

  • Internet auction fraud

  • viruses, Trojan horses and denial of service attacks

  • the responses to the Council of Europe Cybercrime Convention

  • the impact of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and Directive 2001/29/EC

  • copyright and file-sharing, including the recent Supreme Court decision in MGM v Grokster.

This is an essential read for all those interested in the interface between law and technology and the effect of new technological developments on the law
