Electronic Commerce, Third Edition, takes a practical, practice-oriented approach to the study of e-commerce. Author Ronald Mann, well-known commercial law scholar who recently served as Reporter for revisions to UCC Articles 3, 4, and 4A, de-mystifies the technology surrounding e-commerce with clear language and a problem-based pedagogy. The text is structured around the hypothetical representation of a technology company, giving students a preview of how principles and strategies work in the real world.
Among the features that make this text so accessible and illuminating:
• lucid and concise reading assignments, that use nontechnical language whenever possible
• explanations about need-to-know technology that are clear and easily understood
• exercises that illustrate current issues in e-commerce practice
• coverage of important commercial law topics, such as click-through contracts, cybersquatting, web site development, software licensing, and electronic payments
• dozens of discrete assignments that allow for concentration on specific areas of interest
• extensive Teacher’s Manual that provides answers to assignments in the book and a companion web site (www.mann-ecommerce.com) that complements and enriches printed materials
The Third Edition has been thoroughly updated and reorganized to focus on current issues. New materials include:
• the latest on spyware and a new assignment on potential liability for internet-based intermediaries (including edited versions of the Perfect 10 cases)
• in-depth analysis of important landmark cases such as the Supreme Court opinion in Grokster and the Ninth Circuit en banc opinion in Yahoo! v. UEJF
• numerous new opinions in a variety of areas, including cybergriping ( Lamparello v. Falwell), CAN-SPAM (Omega World Travel v. Mummagraphics), CDA (FHC v. Roommates.com), and clickwrap (Wachter)
• updated problem sets that reflect advances in technology and practice
