"Since the pioneering first publication of Internet Technology Law, this book has become widely recognised and respected as an authority on the subject, and the most thorough account of IT law available. Focussing primarily on developments within the UK and EU, along with some comparative international aspects, this book provides a broad-ranging account and analysis of the frequently uneasy relationship between the law and IT." This book is an essential resource for undergraduates and postgraduates on law courses covering the law relating to IT, including IT law, criminal law, intellectual property, and contract law. It will also be highly valuable to business and management students, practitioners, and professionals working in the area.
